A limited edition with a wide appeal

Introducing our first product collaboration with ECI: a limited edition collection of shoes with a special significance. These pairs feature designs inspired by Congolese textiles, with two styles for men and one for women. $5 from each pair helps fund ECI's programs for youth and families in the region, and a child in need will receive a new pair of shoes.

A meaningful partnership

Not only are we partnering with ECI to design shoes for customers, we work with the organization to give new pairs to kids in need. Since October 2012, ECI has been one of our Shoe Giving Partners, providing TOMS Shoes as part of its programs to help children and their communities.

ECI's story

Founded by Ben Affleck, Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI) is the first U.S. based advocacy and grant-making initiative wholly focused on working with and for the people of eastern Congo. ECI believes that local, community-based approaches are essential to creating a sustainable and successful society in eastern Congo.
