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.

These shoes have also been worn by Argentine farmers for hundreds of years and were the inspiration for the classic style of TOMS.

TOMS offers several vegan styles as well. The company name is derived from the word "tomorrow," and evolved from the original concept, "Shoes for Tomorrow Project."
According to the corporate website, TOMS are currently manufactured in Argentina, China and Ethiopia.
After his visit to Argentina in 2006, Mycoskie decided to get involved in shoe giving.
