FAQ: Where can I buy Toms Shoes in Malaysia? What is so special about Toms Shoes? Well, Toms Shoes is a for-profit company founded by Blake Mycoskie. The concept of Toms Shoes is, for every pair of shoes sold, a new pair would be donated to a child in need of shoes. Blake had this interesting idea when he visited Argentina. At that time, he and his sister were competing in The Amazing Race.
Then Blake sold off his online driver education company to start Toms Shoes company. Personally Blake Mycoskie loves wearing alpargata shoes made of canvas or cotton worn by Argentine farmers for hundreds of years. Alpargata shoes were the inspiration for the classic style of TOMS SHOES. Now, it comes in various styles, including a Wrap Boot, Stitchouts, Cordones, and Botas.
So, where can one find or buy Toms Shoes in Malaysia?
There is a shop in Central Market aka Pasar Seni in the heart of Kuala Lumpur which sells Tom shoes. The shop is called K & J Collection (DG 13) at the ground floor. It is facing directly the second book store called Kedai Buku (Book Centre).
It offers a variety of styles and colors. It only costs RM49 per pair. I am NOT sure whether these Toms Shoes are original or not.
Another place where you can get original TOMS Shoes is at TANGS, High Street, 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Petaling Jaya. The prices ranges from hundred plus Ringgit to two hundred over Ringgit.
