WATCH: TOMS One Day Without Shoes Trailer

We love fashion with a cause, which is why we're stoked to participate in TOMS One Day Without Shoes

In an effort to spread awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a child's life, TOMS (a One for One company) invites you to take off your shoes on April 10th. 

In a world where some folks spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of designer kicks, millions of children live without a single pair of shoes. Their bare soles expose them to injury and disease and often prevent them from getting an education, since they need shoes to attend school

On April 10th, go about your daily activities without your shoes and when someone asks why you're barefoot, explain that you're choosing to go without shoes so that kids won't have to. Encourage them to ditch their shoes and join the cause. 

Snap pics of you and your shoeless peers and share them on your favorite social media sites with the hashtag #withoutshoes. 

essie joined forces with TOMS and is showing their support with a custom nail polish color called Barefoot in Blue. If you're gonna be barefoot, you might as well have an eye-catching pedicure! 

Check out the inspiring and moving trailer for the 2012 event with footage of last year's global participants.
