The Barefoot Challenge

Today is Toms: One Day Without Shoes.

Try going without shoes and bring awareness to global health and education problems.


How do I get involved?

Simple: Go without shoes on April 16! Better yet, get a group of friends/classmates/co-workers to go without shoes – you’ll be joining thousands around the world in a global movement.

Why would a shoe company sponsor an event to not wear shoes?

This is our day to bring awareness to global children’s health and education issues. Providing shoes supports the health and education of children in need all over the world!

How can I get involved beyond One Day Without Shoes?

We are so excited that you are interested in doing more! There are many barriers to children’s health and education. We encourage you to find a solution you are passionate about supporting, such as education, clean water, agriculture, microfinance, health or child labor. There are lots of organizations working to improve children’s health and education worldwide that need support. Need a place to start? Check out TOMS Giving Partners. We are working on getting a list online. Until then, please check out the TOMS blog at to see some of them.
