Your old shoes give new hope in 127 countries around the world.

Donate your used shoes to our clinic from November 20, 2017  to January 8, 2018.


Runners and athletes go through a ton of shoes over the course of a training cycle. Studies suggest that runners should replace their shoes every 500km in order to reduce risk of injury and maintain performance. But just because you shouldn’t train for a marathon in those shoes doesn’t mean they’re not perfectly suitable for everyday life!

Thanks to our Annual Holiday Shoe Drive, we have collected close to 300 pairs of shoes for children and adults in need around the world. This year we are shooting for the stars and hoping to double this number!

We will certainly need your help in order to reach this goal. So please spread the word and recycle your used shoes in support of an incredible cause!

  • Running shoes
  • Sandals
  • Winter boots
  • Rain boots
  • Work boots
  • Hiking shoes/boots
  • Golf shoes

Mission Statement: Soles4Souls creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes around the world.

We advance our mission in two distinct ways: Short Term Relief and Long Term Solutions

  1. Free shoe distribution: In the short term, Soles4Souls is able to provide new shoes to those in need. We work with non-profit partners including homeless shelters, after school programs, international relief and disaster relief organizations to get shoes to those who need them most.
  2. Micro-enterprise: In places like Haiti, Honduras and parts of Africa, work is extremely hard to find. Many people live in deep poverty, meaning families live on less than $1.25 per day. We offer the opportunity for many in developing nations to create small businesses selling shoes (a micro-enterprise). This is a powerful and sustainable way for people who are without a traditional job or training to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
