snipshot_e41eau6b0os4.jpgWhen she’s not a pirate in love/not in love with Captain Jack Sparrow, or an impossibly good looking 18th Century Jane Austen character, Keira Knightley is a fashionista with an eye for design and a penchant for charitable causes.

So is the case with TOMS Shoes — a business that allows Knightley to combine her love for helping out, while also looking good. TOMS creates shoes that are inspired by the traditional make found in Argentina.  For every pair that is bought in stores around the world, the company generously gives away the same pair to a person in need. Over 10,000 pairs have been distributed so far to poor in Argentina.

You can pick up a pair for about $38 or hit up the website for more information. A great concept and business that’s easy on the wallet and good for the sole.
