Founder, Chief Shoe Giver; Toms Shoes
Mycoskie, 33, has been on the go since 2006. Toms is one of the fastest-growing businesses in the industry, and even after a tough financial year, the company is showing no indication of slowing its philanthropic business model — for every pair sold, one is given to someone in desperate need. By year-end, that will amount to 300,000. High-profile exposure from Mycoskie’s appearance in a national AT&T commercial didn’t hurt either. Mycoskie and team spent time running a pop-up store in Montauk, N.Y., over the summer, and last month released the Cordones collection, the first pair of Toms Shoes with laces. An upgraded and exclusive line with special linings and premium fabrics will hit Neiman Marcus across the nation and in Bergdorf Goodman in New York later this month. Next spring, Toms also will release a line for kids at the luxury retailers. The business has grown so quickly, Mycoskie is hunting for a CFO.
