Take a look into TOMS' brand new SoHo store

TOMS shoes can be seen on feet of New Yorkers pretty much all over the city, but not until Feb. 27, 2015 did New York see its very first dedicated TOMS store. The new venue at 264 Elizabeth St. boasts a coffee shop serving fair trade coffee, an eyewear shop, TOMS shoe collection, a free book swap and a soon-to-open outdoor patio perfect for lounging in your new kicks.

While shopping sprees can sometimes feel a little guilt-ridden, TOMS is known for its one-for-one policy, donating shoes, sight, safe birth and clean water to those in need with each purchase of their products. This is some shopping we can feel good about.

Take a first look inside the shop with us!

The new cafe boasts a menu serving pour-over, espresso drinks and house specials like a vanilla coriander latte. The seating area features a wide counter, barstools, outlets and free wifi so you can hang out at the coffee shop and put off shoe shopping. Or, you know, take a few breaks instead of doing whatever it is you're supposed to be doing on your laptop.

Pastries!

Just scoot across the room to the glasses store. TOMS is working on partnering with local eye doctors to fill prescriptions for the frames sold in their SoHo store. A purchase of glasses also helps provide sight to a person in need.

TOMS is also home to a free book swap! Add one of your old books to the shelf and grab a new book, totally for free. If you're in desperate need of reading material and promise to return with another book next time, you can probably get away with borrowing one. We were eying some hardcovers...

Oh, and there are also shoes.

The backyard patio features a gas fireplace and plenty of seating! Read your new book, sip some iced coffee and relax in your new shoes. This spring, TOMS hopes to bring themed craft nights such as “knitting gangs”, documentary and movie screenings, coffee, beer & cocktail tastings and live music to the backyard.

Don't forget one last pourover on your way out!
