I've always loved canvas slip-ons that we affectionately call "old school boat shoes" in our house. They complete my summer (and often winter) wardrobe. Just easy and comfortable and different. My new favorite find is TOMS for 1. their simple and easy to wear design 2. their haven't-seen-around-much uniqueness and 3. their cause. They have a "one for one" policy: for every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair to a child in need. That's stellar! And all for only $40. "Changing a life begins with a single step."
