Akira is proud to bring One for One to the windy city, making it possible for locals in Chicago to try on and pick up a stellar new pair of TOMS. And because they’re awesome, they will be hosting a killer event this June! Read on to hear the details and get to know our friends at Akira.

How long have you been carrying TOMS?
We have been carrying TOMS for a little over a year.

Why does your store carry TOMS?

We carry TOMS because we love the story behind the company and what they stand for. They offer a product that is comfortable, durable and super-cute! You feel good purchasing them and wearing them!



What shoe has been your best seller?

Our best sellers are the striped/rope bottoms in red and yellow. They’re perfect for summer. Also, everybody loves the basic colors like black and gray.

What is your (personal) favorite TOMS style?
My personal favorite TOMS shoe are the glitter ones. (…can’t wait to get them in again soon!)

Do you get many customers who recognize the shoes?
Tons of people recognize the TOMS shoes, especially since the commercials aired. People love that they are for a good cause.

What makes your store special, why should people come visit?

AKIRA is THE place in Chicago to buy footwear (and pretty much the only one that carries TOMS)!!! We have a wide range of prices and shoes, and a phenomenal, energetic staff. Our customer service and loyalty we build with our clients is what sets us apart from any old shoe store. We love shoes, and our customers are always pleased!



Tell us about the event you have coming up…

So here are the details of our TOMS party. Its June 25th from 4-9pm at the AKIRA Women’s Footwear on 1849 W. North Avenue. Local Chicago artist SARO will be there to paint the shoes. He has a cool graffiti-inspired style and will be using airbrush and stencils! Clients will also be able to paint their own purchased TOMS if they choose as well. It will be a painting party! Release your inner artist:) We’ll have refreshments by Ultimat vodka and gift bags by LUSH Handmade Cosmetics with TOMS purchase! Art supplies were donated by Utrecht on Michigan Avenue and Genesis Art Supplies on Western.
