Twinkle Toes: TOMS Launches Ballet Flats For Spring

On the heels of the successful launch of wedges and their collaboration with The Row, TOMS' Blake Mycoskie has announced his one-for-one company will be debuting ballet flats this spring. Given the demand from customers for a “less-casual” TOMS shoe, there will be two different collections: An upscale line will hit Neiman Marcus for $125, while other retailers will receive a core collection for around $75. This Santa Monica-based business is truly expanding, selling over two-million pairs as of 2011, but Blake promises, “You’re not going to see stilettos from TOMS.” (WWD)
