Adams Arms’ #MagsForToms BuyBack Movement

Last week, Toms shoes founder, Blake Mycoskie, publicly stated that Toms would donate $5 million to various anti-gun organizations under the guise of “universal background checks to end gun violence.” The reality of the situation is that the concept of a “universal background check” does nothing to stop criminals from getting ahold of firearms, as it only affects the law abiding.

To combat this and take a stand for all Pro-Second Amendment citizens, Adams Arms launched a campaign to send a message that gun owners will not sit by idle and allow the continued degradation of the Rights of the American People. Jens Krogh, the VP of Sales and Marketing for Adams Arms, said the company believes in more freedom for Americans… not less.

The original buyback campaign was to send a free 30rd magazine to anyone (10rd magazines to those in restricted states) who sent a pair of new or used Toms shoes (postmarked) before January 1st, 2019 and burn the Toms via Instagram live, but Adams Arms had a slight change of plans.

“Originally we were going to burn the shoes, but decided that’s no way to treat something that could be used again by homeless veterans,” VP of Sales & Marketing, Jens Krogh, said.

“But then we thought to ourselves… we should at least make the shoes less hippie.  So we’re going to alter them with a pro Second Amendment message and THEN donate them to several worthy causes for veterans and impoverished people living in oppressive countries where they do not have the freedoms we cherish.”

Amend2 Magazines, a high-quality magazine and accessory company based in Idaho, loved the idea so much that they partnered with Adams Arms to support the cause and donated the first batch of #MagsForToms. For every pair of Toms Shoes sent in, one Amend2 30-round (or 10-round) magazine will be sent to your door!

Here’s how it works.  Send Adams Arms your shoes at:

Adams Arms
Mags for TOMS
1551 Gunn Highway
Odessa FL 33556

You must include a note with your shipping address and email address. It must be legal to ship a 30 round mag to your state, or if you live in a restricted state, Adams Arms will send you a 10 round magazine.

Before you send them… post a picture with #shoeburn #magsfortoms and #shallnotbeinfringed to spread the word.

It’s worth pointing out that the organizations in line to get money from Toms are Black & Brown Gun Violence Prevention Consortium, Everytown for Gun Safety, Faith in Action, Giffords, Livefree, March for Our Lives and Moms Demand Action.

    Real question is if we can make a donation to the cause and then send in my wife’s Toms for pro second amendment decoration and return.

  2. Bill C says:

    Maybe Adams Arms should start paying all the vendors they owe copious amounts of money to before pulling stunts like this?

      Go figure …. the gun industry trying to gin up publicity on the back of feigned outrage.

    Useless PR stunt. People blowing up their Yeti coolers and Keurigs. Burning their Nikes. A bunch or very, very sensitive people. Look too closely and you’ll find you own a lot of shit made by ChiComs and others you disagree with. Welcome to reality. But… good PR, right?

    I’ll be hitting up my local goodwill for used Toms (i live in washington state so they shouldnt be too hard to find).

  5. Mitch says:

    Bwahahaha! It’s always”blame the messenger” isn’t it? Yes guns kill. They are supposed to do that. But its the people wielding them that ultimately decide whether to act responsibly or become a killer. The vast, vast majority are NOT killers but own their weapons for safety and recreation. We know this; the debate will never end but we can only hope that America remains America.

  6. P.J. says:

    I sorta double there’s enough crossover between Toms owners and gun owners who’d be aware they of this to really have any impact. I will share a quote from a friend who had a pair of Toms: “I really hope the kid in Africa who got the pair of shoes when I bought these got a better shoe. These have not held up well at all. They kinda suck.”

    • Adun says:

      IIRC, it was worse than that, because giving someone shoes who has never worn them means they start to lose their callouses right around the time when their shit shoes fail and they are barefoot again, now you are really in trouble.
