An American, Blake Mycoskie is an entrepreneur with a net worth of $5 million. Blake Mycoskie gained his net worth by being the founder of TOMS Shoes, a footwear company located in Santa Monica, California. Born in Arlington, Texas, Mycoskie donates a part of TOMS shoes to a child in need every time a person buys a pair of shoes from his company.
TOMS Shoes is a for-profit company based in Santa Monica, California, that also operates a non-profit subsidiary, Friends of TOMS. The company was founded in 2006 by Blake Mycoskie, an entrepreneur from Arlington, Texas. The company designs and sells lightweight shoes based on the Argentine alpargata design.
