The US Urban Outfitters were selling these recently, I don't know if the UK UOs are too.

But honestly, I thought the ones I saw were really ugly. Although I like the paint splattered one above, and if they a a pair of black TOMS with light colored sole than I might get them.

I tried these on and they fit me really weirdly. I have a bit of a wider foot so I wasn't really able to get them on for some reason, I really wanted them too

Really? I have a wider foot too, so that's not good. They do have a black pair with a white sole which I was looking at. Oh well, guess I'm going to have to try these in person first.

Im probably going to have to get the cheap Kmart version since Toms wont make small sizes ... dont know if Kmart does either unless they make this style in kids or they have a 5 & it runs small.

I used to wear the Kmart version too! They had tons last time I was there. I was walking down the aisle where they all were and the smell of cheap rubber was overpowering.

LOL Well I dont know what else to do since TOMS doesnt make all sizes. Did the Kmart ones come in navy & did they come in kids sizes or did they run small?

Understand that lots of you are after a bargain, but I feel like it defeats the point of the Toms brand to be talking about buying cheaper versions, which are no doubt manufactured in sweatshops (if they're being bought from Kmart etc). Surely this is a bit ironic!

Toms aren't even particularly expensive, and by buying a pair, you're doing a little good, as they give a free pair to children in poverty.

just a thought!

I TOTALLY agree with you too. I only thought I had no other choice but the Kmart ones because TOMS doesnt make them small enough for my feet... damn them lol. Seriously though I love to purchase from companys that help like they do but what am I to do if they just dont make them small enough? Turns out the Kmart (to get the look) ones are too big too.

I did write TOMS to complain & finally got this back from them so hopefully soon!

Hi Tiffany,

Thanks for your interest in TOMS. Unfortunately we do not carry children's
sizes but are working on a children's line. We just do not have any
specific dates when this line will be released. If you would for me to
inform you via email when these become available I would be happy to.


Many thanks,

Peyton Wallace

^ That's nice that they wrote back to you. Is your size considered a kid's size? Or just a really hard to find woman's size?
