Election 2012 Footwear from TOMS

Sep 13, 2012

They’re Back!  TOMS has created election-themed flats for all of us who will be doorbelling, lit dropping, getting out the vote or supporting our chosen political party this season. 

From the Left: Democrat Toms, Vote Toms and Republican Toms ($58)

I had a pair of the 2008 edition shoes.  I have no idea what happened to them, so I am glad TOMS decided to offer them again.  I added a ball-of-foot gel insole for extra cushion and my feet felt just fine all campaign season long.

    Do you know if you can get these in stores anywhere in the DC area? Toms are so particular with sizing, I'd love to be able to try them on first! Thanks!

  2. KL says:

    I'm so excited to see that they came out with a non-party “Vote” pair this time around! Great option for Independents, people of other parties, or those who just don't want to wear their party affiliation on their sleeve (or shoes!)

  3. Anna says:

    Oh goodness, I think TOMS are disgusting. They look like what I'd imagine homeless elves wearing. I even boycott they're non-traditional, cuter looking styles out of principle.

  4. Jes says:

    I agree with Anna! There are cute non-Toms-Looking-Toms but I just can't bring myself to wear a brand of shoe that makes me think of little potato sacks on my feet…

    Sometimes I really, really want Toms (especially these election ones) but really… homeless elves/potato sacks. I just can't do it.

    Super cute! I'm not campaigning this year, but maybe my feet willl 😉

    ,,,yeah, they're back! love “Toms.” can't wait to sport these comfy shoes as i dial for votes, ring doorbells, hand out literature, and vote on tuesday, november 6th,,,

    I must say that I am surprised that you are down for sporting Toms… while I am not as stylish as I'd like, I think Toms are almost as bad as Uggs and Crocs on the, “Dear heavens, WHY?!” list.

  8. CarlyRM says:

    helixy, my thoughts exactly. Toms make feet look like a wrapped burrito.

  9. RS says:

    Agreed, helixy — I was surprised to see Belle endorsing Toms. I think they are just as hideous as Crocs. At least Uggs are functional – they can keep your legs warm in the winter.

    I still think you're great though, Belle 🙂

    these are pretty awful! although i don't really like any style of toms, maybe that is the problem…

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
