Newbark VS. TOMS
I have been a fan of TOMS shoes based out of L.A 1) because of their humanitarian concept, 2) because they are always designing with new colors and prints and styles, 3) you can go on shoe drops with them!
Now there is a new company Newbark who is creating similar shoes that cost 7 times as much and do not even give to anything! The shoe looks exactly like a TOMS but it is thinner and is probably made of calf leather. These shoes are "inspired by a Moroccan shoe" but they look like the leather shoes Muslims wear after Wudu or body cleansing with water to keep their feet clean for prayer which can be purchased for about $10-20.
