Kick Off Your Heels for TOMS' Annual 'One Day Without Shoes'

04/04/2012 at 04:30 PM ET

Put the style statements aside for one day — we promise, it’s worth it. TOMS is bringing back its annual ‘One Day Without Shoes’ on Tuesday, April 10, asking people to go barefoot for a day, or hour or even a few minutes to raise awareness about the impact a pair of shoes can have on a child’s life.

According to the brand, which invented the ‘one for one’ idea (donating a pair of shoes to a needy child for each pair of shoes purchased), millions of kids grow up without footwear, increasing their risks of disease and infection. In 2011, more than 250,000 people went without shoes to show their support, with more than 1,000 barefoot events taking place globally.
