TOMS Review

My friend Scarlett, (Click here to see her blog), did a review on TOMS. I thought that was a really great idea and wanted to do a review as well.

I have three pairs of TOMS, a classic black, which I've had since last August, a classic red, which I've had since last October, and Turquoise Crochet which I've had since around April. I actually used to think TOMS were hideous, but now I can't believe I ever thought that! I wear these with pretty much everything!
A lot of people have problems with sizing. Let me start off by saying, my normal size is a size 8. When I went to Nordstrom to buy the black ones, they made me try a 7.5 and said they would stretch. I didn't listen and got the 8. It's been about 9 months now, and they are stretched out, but not longways, sideways! Which isn't something I could control by what size I got. However, a 7.5 probably would've fit a little better. I also wore and still wear the black ones a lot, probably at least 2-3 times a week!

Then for my birthday I asked for red ones because that was our basketball team's color, so I wanted to wear them to games. I got an 8 in these too, but I only wear them about half the amount I wear the black and they aren't stretched much and are perfect size. I really think the size you get depends on how often you're going to wear them!

Then a girl at my school had the turquoise crochet TOMS, and I loved them! The turquoise is a Nordstrom exclusive color, as is fuchsia. I read lots of reviews on these to make sure I got the right size, and almost everyone said to go half a size smaller. I was ordering online because they were sold out in stores so I wanted to make the right decision. I got them in 7.5 and to this day they fit perfectly!

By the pictures, you can probably tell my black ones are starting to get dirty and gray in some areas. But that is because I've used the life out of them! The red and crochet ones are still as good as new! Also, each pair comes with a little cinch sack, which you can see in the first picture, and a TOMS sticker. Some of my friends like to use their bag to carry their lunches to school, and I like to use mine as a room decoration. You could do anything you want with the stickers!

TOMS also claims to have a one for one program, where they give a pair of TOMS to people in need when you buy a pair. I don't know anything really about that though. 

Overall I would definitely recommend that anyone buy TOMS and go a half size smaller. Don't forget to see The Trendy Chick's review! And let me know if you want any more reviews on certain beauty and fashion items!

  1. Hi! I was wondering if you could send me a link to where I can purchase the turquoise crochet Toms. I looked on the Nordstroms website, but I only found coral as far as exclusive colors go. Thanks so much!

    1. They're most likely sold out because it was very very very hard to get my hands on these I waited weeks for my size to come in. I would say try eBay or wait and see if they get them back in stock.

  3. I wear an exact 8.5, and I mean EXACT [My feet don't get squished or anything though, it's the perfect fit]. I want to get the black Toms like the ones you have but I'm unsure about what size to get. I'm not going to be wearing them every single day but I am going to be wearing it out a lot and I don't want it to fit for like a couple of months then flop of the back of my feet later down the road. Should I just go with the 8.5 or risk the 8? And I'm ordering online from Nordstroms but I just wanted to know do they actually come with the bag and stickers or is it just the shoebox? I know I'm asking a ton of questions but this would be really helpful!

    1. My exact size is an 8, and I got that in black and they stretched a little, but not enough that they flop off my feet or anything! I would say to get the 8.5. And yes they come with a bag and sticker no matter where you buy them!

    2. Thank you so much!!!
