This Socially-Conscious Shoe Brand Just Released An Updated Version Of Its Most Iconic Silhouette

Bigger, bolder, and seriously plush

A good outfit has the ability to make an impact, but it’s not just about an eye-catching garment or a cute pair of shoes. Unwavering style is all about the energy behind it, especially when it’s coming from someone who’s making positive changes wherever they go. TOMS knows just how powerful a combination of style and social action can be. Since the brand started 15 years ago, it has been able to positively impact 100,000,000 lives by showing support to nonprofits all around the globe. TOMS is continuing its mission by committing ⅓ of its profits to help grassroots groups that focus on putting an end to gun violence, supporting mental health, and providing access to opportunity.

As part of its new initiative, TOMS gave its signature Alpargata shoe a makeover. The Mallow features a comfortable platform sole made with earth-friendly materials. To celebrate the launch of the Mallow Puff and the Mallow Puff Mule, TOMS has enlisted an inspiring group of models who are making a difference in the world. Gabrielle is the founder of Brown Girl Butterfly Project, an initiative aimed at creating a community for Black and Brown women and non-binary folks. Greisy created @laschicaschulas, a space for Gen Z Latinx to gather and discuss mental health, art, and activism. Candace launched @femalecollective for women to find support and celebration, and Mimi is a writer and outspoken mental health advocate.

Ready to get inspired? Slip into a pair of Mallows and start making big, bold moves of your own. Ahead, find four ways to style the shoe this fall.

Sunday, Lazy, Sunday

On the rare (and wonderful) weekends when you don’t have any pressing matters to attend to, take advantage of your free time and enjoy life’s little pauses. A lazy day calls for the most comfortable outfit in your closet and footwear to match. Slip on a pair of Mallow Mules, throw on some cozy joggers and a worn-in tee, and embrace the simple art of doing nothing at all (even if it’s just rewatching your favorite TV show for the fifth time).

Bookstore Browsing

Got the itch for a new bedside read? Maybe it’s time to pay a visit to your neighborhood bookstore and pick up that novel you’ve been curious about. The Mallow Puff Mule is the perfect walking-to-the-shops shoe, and you can easily wear it with your favorite pair of jeans and an oversized graphic tee. Spice up the otherwise casual outfit with a statement ring.

Action, Action

To think that there was a time when fitness and fashion didn’t mix. Thankfully, we’re living in 2021, and you can easily pair leopard print bike shorts with a seashell-themed choker, and cute, comfortable shoes. Whether you’re going for an afternoon walk or just want to run errands in your activewear, slipping on the Mallow Mule in a bright, playful color is always the right move.

Chillin’ In the Park

Look like the very definition of picnic chic in a black jumpsuit contrasted with the Mallow Puff in varying shades of red. Accessorized with a sleek watch and a geometric purse, the only thing missing is the charcuterie.
