AT&T Store

Not sure how long AT&T Stores have had their own icon, but I think this may have come about as part of the recent AT&T/TOMS Shoes promotion.

TOMS Shoes Promotion

TOMS Shoes

TOMS and AT&T are using Gowalla to promote their mission of getting shoes to the world’s less fortunate. Between Aug. 16th and 23rd Check-Ins “at various apparel stores and electronics shops” will enter you in a chance to win 1,000 pairs of TOMS shoes, 250 smartphones or 5 netbooks (the later thanks to AT&T). The grand prize winner “will travel with a guest to Buenos Aires in September to celebrate the four-year-old program’s 1 millionth donated pair of shoes.”

Hopefully we’ll see some cool custom Items.

I saw Blake Mycoskie, the founder of TOMS Shoes, speak recently and I have to say this is a really cool company with an incredible mission. (If you haven’t heard of them they donate a pair of shoes to a needy child for every pair that is sold. In lots of countries children can’t go to school unless they have shoes and some families will rotate a pair between children so that they can go to school every three days or so.) Go TOMS and Gowalla!
