  • Product and Sizing Questions

    1. What size should I order?

      TOMS™ generally run true to size and are available in medium width only. We recommend ordering the size you normally wear in a casual or dress shoe. If you're typically in-between sizes, we recommend going with the smaller one since TOMS™ will stretch slightly as you break them in.

    2. In what widths are TOMS™ available?

      TOMS™ are available in medium width only. Unfortunately, at this time we do not offer wide or narrow sizes. However, as we continue to grow as a company, we hope to expand our sizing options in the future.

    3. Will my TOMS™ stretch?

      Your TOMS™ Alpargatas will most likely stretch with wear. They should fit snug out of the box with your toes touching the end. After a few hours of wearing, they will stretch slightly to conform to your feet.

      The fit of your TOMS shoes may vary depending on the style and material. Leather shoes may require some wearing in and may stretch slightly with wear.
      If you are unsure whether or not they will fit, please try your TOMS™ on a carpeted surface before removing the labels, as we do not accept returns on shoes that show any wear or use.

    4. What are the ages for Youth and Tiny shoes?

      We recommend Tiny shoes for ages 0-5 years and Youth shoes for ages 5 years and up. Note: This is a general guideline to help navigate to the correct category. Ages for Youth and Tiny will vary depending on the shoe size.

    5. How do I wash my TOMS™ Shoes?

      We highly recommend hand washing TOMS™ in cold water with a gentle detergent and let them air dry. We do not recommend putting TOMS™ in the dryer under any circumstances. Please note that fading can be expected (especially from sun exposure) and does not compromise the durability of the shoe. If your shoes are altered or not as expected after washing, please note that TOMS will not cover this under warranty.

    6. What type of leather does TOMS™ use for insoles?

      We use pig suede for our Alpargatas core collection and seasonal core colors for men and women.

  • General TOMS™ Questions

    1. How was TOMS™ started?

      TOMS™ was founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie, inspired by a trip to Argentina where he saw extreme poverty and health conditions, as well as children walking without shoes. Founded on a simple premise: With every pair purchased, TOMS™ gives a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One™.

    2. Is TOMS™ a non-profit organization?

      TOMS™ Shoes is a for-profit company with giving at its core. With our One for One™ mission, TOMS™ transforms our customers into benefactors, which allows us to grow truly sustainable giving efforts rather than depending on fundraising for support. This model has enabled us to give more shoes at a rapid rate and created thousands of customer-philanthropists along the way.

    3. Who is Tom?

      There is no Tom. Our name comes from the abbreviation of "Shoes for Tomorrow". The original idea was — for every pair purchased today, a new pair of shoes will be given tomorrow. This is how the One for One™ Movement was born.

    4. How does TOMS™ give the matched pairs?

      With every pair you purchase, TOMS™ will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One™. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we're all about.

      To learn more on how and where we give, visit our One for One™ section.

    5. How can I contact Customer Service?

      We are available for you via phone, email and chat. Visit our Customer Service page for our contact information. We're here to help!

    6. I found a website that looks authentic and sells TOMS™ products. Is it real?

      The official website of TOMS™ in the Netherlands is shopTOMS.nl, where you can purchase authentic TOMS™ shoes, apparel and eyewear. Counterfeit or unauthorized TOMS™ websites may invoke the look and feel of the official TOMS™ website and showcase what appear to be legitimate products, when in fact their products are fake.

      Some sites or blogs illegally copy photographs, product descriptions, text and other intellectual property directly from our official site. In addition, they may offer a substantial discount off of their retail price of counterfeit TOMS™ products. These practices make consumers believe they are receiving a discount on TOMS™ products. Ultimately, consumers may receive a low quality counterfeit product, or nothing at all.

      We have identified a number of these websites that have infringed upon our intellectual property rights and are selling counterfeit products.

      If you have come across any suspicious websites that you think are counterfeit or unauthorized, please email us at ip@TOMS.com

      Yes! TOMS is in business to improve lives and all TOMS products give. For every 3€ we make we give 1€ away, that includes earthwise™. You can learn more about the impact of your purchase at shoptoms.nl/impact.

    5. You say earthwise™ is a long term commitment, what goals do you have to continue to improve?

      Our sustainability journey is just that—a journey. And we’re excited to share every step of it along the way, from our current efforts to our future goals. As a starting point, we are committed to:

      • Improving our B Corp score with each re-certification (every 3 years).
      • Expanding earthwise™ by designing more products that use earth-friendly materials and processes.
      • Sourcing 100% sustainable cotton by 2025.
      • Continuing to source 100% of our product packaging from sustainably managed forests and having it comprised of 80%+ recycled materials.
      • Reducing our carbon footprint year over year and sharing our progress.
      • Partnering with best-in-class organizations to evaluate our progress, including:
        • Fair Labor Association (FLA) - Membership with FLA is an advanced recognition of a company's labor compliance program. It helps TOMS make better policies that benefit both the workers and the planet.
        • Canopy - being committed to Canopy’s conservation standards encourages us to continue to source all wood-based material we use from sustainably-managed forests. See our full policy here.

      We are updating our packaging in 2020 to reduce its impact on the environment.

      • We are removing the single-use plastic panel on our gift boxes.
    8. How do you determine if a product is labeled earthwise™?

      We don’t use the term “earth-friendly” loosely. In order for a product to be considered earthwise™, at least one of its main components must contain earth-friendly materials, and at a minimum percentage. You can learn more about our earthwise framework at shoptoms.nl/environment.

    9. TOMS® is B corp certified and sustainability is a key B Corp metric, what is TOMS® doing as a company to meet that expectation?

      We’re very proud to have become a member of the B Corp community in 2018, but we know there’s always room for improvement. We’re developing a plan to increase our overall B Corp score in 2021 with particular emphasis on improving our environmental score. We are exploring things like reducing waste and energy use in our facilities, measuring and reducing our carbon footprint and developing an end-of-use program for our shoes.
