One Day Without Shoes

Free your toes today in support of TOMS "One Day Without Shoes!"

Now in its fifth year "One Day Without Shoes" encourages people around the world to ditch their shoes for the day in order to spread awareness of the impact a pair shoes can have on a child's life by taking off their own.

Last year over 250,000 people worldwide went barefoot to support the cause.

Blake Mycoskie, the founder of TOMS shoes, has dedicated his successful business to providing footwear for kids around the world--for every pair of TOMS shoes purchased, Mycoskie will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need.

And with over one million pairs donated, the message and mission is definitely spreading.

If going the whole day without shoes is a bit too extreme for your taste, then try kick them off for 10 minutes at your desk, while you're waiting for dry cleaning or whenever you have a few moments to reflect on this awesome movement.

In celebration of "One Day Without Shoes," here's a look at some celebs who have been caught free of footwear. Get inspired and bare your soles!
