Apparel Group to exclusively distribute TOMS footwear across the Middle East

Dubai, August 2014Apparel Group, the Dubai based retail conglomerate has been appointed the exclusive distributor for TOMS footwear and accessories across the Middle East. 

TOMS, born in Venice, California was founded by Blake Mycoskie in 2006 when Mycoskie traveled to a village in Argentina and witnessed the hardships of children growing up without shoes to protect their feet. As a proven entrepreneur, he decided to launch TOMS, which stands for ‘Tomorrows Shoes’. 

Through the simple One for One® giving model, TOMS gives away a pair of shoes to children in need for every pair purchased. TOMS signature footwear is inspired by the locally worn Argentinian, ‘alpargatas’, a comfortable and casual fabric shoe. TOMS also offers a line that are made from sustainable and vegan materials such as natural hemp, organic cotton, and recycled polyester. 

Seeing that business could fuel positive impact, the company launched TOMS eyewear, in support of the visually impaired, with the same One for One ® model helps give sight to one person in need through every purchase of TOMS eyewear.

Last year TOMS gave away its 10 millionth pair of shoes. 'Within the next 18 to 24 months,' Mycoskie says, 'we expect we'll have given away 10 million more.' In addition, over 200,000 people have regained their sight through TOMS’ partnership through sight giving partners. 

From humble beginnings and an aim to help just a small village with an initial shoe donation, TOMS has now helped millions of people around the world and has grown to be a globally recognized brand for both their products and inspiring initiatives. 

TOMS is now expanding its reach to the Middle Eastern region and their products can be locally purchased at Apparel Group’s Athlete’s Co outlets. 

“We are proud to be able to bring such a respected and renowned brand to the region. TOMS is a formidable organisation, loved for its iconic products, and the spirit of giving back that has made the brand what it is today.” said Nilesh Ved, Chairman of Apparel Group.
