I don't know about all the rest of you TOMS wearers out there, but i wear through my rather quickly. i always get little holes in the tips of mine where my big toes poke out haha. i was sick of not being able to wear them anymore (as they cost rather a lot more than they should), so i decided to patch them up finally.
Instead of leaving just one little patch on the tip, i also decided to embellish them a bit with some gold ribbon which i used fabric glue to attach to the shoe. For the patches, i just used some material from old jeans and glued a square on the inside of the shoe, and then also the outside. Here's my finished product!
