Good news for folks who love shoes in Malaysia. The world famous one-for-one TOM SHOES will be opening its official store in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur soon.
Today I saw the huge posters put up around a shop lot in Pavilion shopping mall (below).
For those who do not know about TOMS SHOES, the founder is Blake Mycoskie, a native from Texas. He is the guy behind the simple idea called One for One which has grown into a global movement.
It is a business model to help a person in need with every product purchased.
Besides shoes, there is another project called this TOMS Eyewear which has restored sight to over 175,000 since launching in 2011.
This year (2014), he started another outfit called TOMS Roasting Company with the mission to provide clean water to developing communities with the purchase of premium coffee.
If you keen to know how Blake Mycoskie started it all or emulate what he has done to help the community, you should get his inspirational book “Start Something Matters“.
*UPDATE (July 2014) : Yes, TOMS SHOES outlet at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur has already opened for business. It carries a wide range of footwear for kids, men and ladies. And also sunglasses. Prices range from around $150 to about $450 each.
I have written about where to buy TOMS SHOES in Malaysia before.
