I was flipping through it and the first few pages were not hawking shoes, rather showing pictures from their recent trip to Argentina giving away shoes. It was fascinating and I was sucked in. Brilliant marketing strategy. They didn't even try to sell shoes for the first half of the magazine and I was ready to buy before I even got to the ads.
Then it dawned on me...I'm a guy. TOMS are "girl" shoes.
Not according to TOMS. They've come out with some cordones and oxfords. But they're also pitching their "classics" as men-approved.
More research was needed. I checked out the TOMS website. Hmmm. Is there a difference?
Let me know what you think. Not that it will change my mind, I'm just curious what the masses think. I tried to get some answers in last week's link up feature, but no takers, so now's your chance to vote!
I also had a survey for your men to take, but it seemed redundant:
Survey for men: Q: Can MEN wear TOMS?
- Heck no.
