ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - TOMS is a shoe company that gives a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair of shoes purchased. On Tuesday, April 10, TOMS is asking the world to go without shoes for its annual One Day Without Shoes event to raise awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a child’s life.
Locally, Glik’s stores are participating in the event. Come and be barefoot with them under the Gateway Arch from Noon to 1:00pm Tuesday. You are also invited to shop in their stores without your shoes.
Millions of children around the world live without proper footwear, exposing them to injury and disease every day.
