TOMS Flagship Store - coffee, shoes, and global change

Oct 9, 2014

We all know TOMS for those comfy chic shoes with a social mission. Buy a cute pair of shoes for yourself, and TOMS will give a pair to a kid in need. But did you know TOMS also has a coffee line? Oh yes. And if you live in Los Angeles, you can go sample some of that deliciousness yourself.


TOMS Roasting Co. follows the same one-for-one mission as the shoe line. For every bag of coffee you buy, TOMS will give one week of free clean water to someone who needs it.

TOMS is all about community. Come to TOMS Flagship Store in Venice, and you'll see photos of customers, TOMS company giving trips (where they hand out the shoes), local events and plenty more.


In a quiet outdoor nook in the back, you can see all the countries where TOMS has made a difference. You can also take part in yoga sessions, Jenga tournaments, movie nights and more.

And about those iconic shoes - at the Flagship Store, you can get up close and personal with the actual "giving shoes" TOMS hands out on their giving trips. They're not the shoes you and I wear every day. Instead, they give away a highly durable shoe customized to the conditions in-country. TOMS is serious about making the shoe work for those they give it to - check out this great story about how they brought snow to LA to test the winter shoes.


Delicious coffee. Must-have shoes. Beautiful social mission. The only thing they don't have is handbags (cough-pleasemakehandbags-cough).

Ready to visit? Head over to TOMS Flagship Store at:
1344 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, CA 90291 

When you're headed over give me a call! They make a mean chai latte, I'll meet you there any day.

    1. I know, isn't that the best? I feel so good purchasing TOMS products! And I'm with you, I'd live solely in TOMS if I could.

      Ha! "Solely"!
