Gear review: TOMS Eyewear

Shades of giving


Known for its unisex canvas shoes (and recent line of ballet flats) that are a huge social and fashion trend, TOMS is now bringing its One for One business model to sunglasses. The “buy one, give one” concept which gave footwear to needy children for every pair bought continues with TOMS Eyewear. This summer, slip on a pair of wayfarer, aviator or oversized shades by the company and TOMS will pony up for prescription eyeglasses, eye surgery or other medical treatments for someone in need in Nepal, Tibet and Cambodia through the Seva Foundation. The Italian-made shades come in three styles, with 22 different colour combos for men and women. ($130 to $150)
