The first purchase of Toms I ever made were for Sheridan. They were a treat for working so hard during one of my events and we choose the shiny silver fabric. I was hugely dissappointed as the fabric tore at the toes not long after she had them. I trimmed them a few times, but they really didn't look good and since I had tried to clip and fix them, I didn't pursue returning them. She received some new Toms for Christmas so we decided to do something fun with the Toms that we weren't wearing. She chose the splatter look, not sure if she'll wear them, but we had a good time on a particularly mild winter day!
