Soles4Souls accepts all types of shoes: athletic, running, dress, sandals, pumps, heels, work boots, cleats, dance, flip flops, just as long as they are new or gently worn. Basically “gently worn” means not too gross to touch or not falling to pieces. Remember, they’re going to someone in the world who may have never owned a pair before! Simply tie pairs together using the laces or rubber band in pairs. Thanks for helping us change the world one pair at a time.
