Monica wears TOMS!

You couldn't imagine the surprise on my face when I noticed that my new Korean co-teacher, Monica, was wearing TOMS yesterday!

I knew she was awesome, but now I REALLY know she's awesome!  When I asked her where she found them (since they're impossible to find in Korea), she said "Oh, I bought them online at the TOM'S website. My daughter told me that if I bought a pair, the company would give a pair to someone who needs shoes, so I bought some!"

*** 10 bonus point for Monica! ***


  1. Hi, my name is Amy! :) I've been a reader of your blog for just a little while. Sort of stumbled upon it from another blog I think! Anyway, my boyfriend and I used to live in Busan for a year in 2004-05 and it's been neat to see what it's like there now! We live in Seoul and don't get to Busan often and kind of miss it at times! Anyway, I just had to comment because I am a TOMS addict. Have four pairs now and have found two of those in Korea! It is possible! There are tons of places in Seoul to get them. I even checked out the TOMS site and it says you can get them in Busan here:
    Rookie Blue - Busan
    Shinsegae Department Store - Busan Centum City Branch 1495, U-Dong Haeundae-Gu

    Although, I think they are a bit more expensive than what you'd pay back home, I still think they're worth it and the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever owned! Anyway, just had to comment and I think it's super cool your co-teacher wears them! They're my indoor shoes at my school and I never see anyone else wearing them! :)

  2. Amy! Thanks for following along! I would love to follow your blog too, if you have one! Please send me your link! ... and thanks for the heads up on the TOMs in busan! :)

  3. I've been meaning to get me some of these shoes! I just need to give in! Maybe I"ll head over there! Thanks again for the inspiration!
