Local retailer participates in "One Day Without Shoes"

Posted:

Could you go an entire day barefoot?

Groups around the world did just that Tuesday.

TOM's held their 6th annual "One Day Without Shoes" event Tuesday.

The program is intended to raise awareness to millions of children worldwide who live without proper footwear everyday.

Locally, Mishawaka Tradehome participated in the event, working in their bare feet all day.

"It is fun, but it's not fun on the feet. It's nice to mix things up but as the day's progressing, we're feeling it," says store manager of Tradehome, Tim Wray.

TOMS is best-known for their pledge to donate a pair of shoes to someone in need for every pair that is purchased.
