June Shoe Drive - Donate Your Used Running & Walking Shoes!
Bring by your lightly used shoes during the month of June as we strive to help create sustainable small farms in Africa along with the MORE Foundation.

Help us reach our goal of 5,000 pairs of shoes during the month of June. When you drop off your used shoes we'll have a small gift for you as a show of our appreciation! (One gift per family, while supplies last)

The MORE Foundation works with us to help collect and distribute lightly used shoes in an effort to provide resources for and to build sustainable small farms.

 

Many people ask, "what happens to all the shoes?"  The shoes are sold in major metro areas to vendors who in turn create jobs and help improve the quality of life in cities.  The vast majority of Africans cannot afford new shoes. The proceeds from the sale of the shoes provides training and tools to the poorest rural farmers.

Brooks Ghost 6 & Glycerin 11

  

Brooks Ghost 6 - The light, bouncy, and balanced ride of the Ghost has haunted the dreams of many competitors -- and it's about to get frighteningly good. We've taken the transition from silky to ridiculously smooth by removing the midfoot shank and creating full ground contact from heel to toe. The underfoot gets even more love with a horseshoe Caterpillar Crash Pad that wraps the heel from medial to lateral sides and articulates the laydown. Looking as good as it feels, runners will fall in love with this friendly ghost

 

Brooks Glycerin 11 - Think of the Glycerin 11 as your foot's butler, catering to your every want and need with plush, conformable comfort in every step. The luxury begins with an ultra-comformable upper that uses innovative 3D Fit Print overlays to create structure and reduce weight. We've also removed the midfoot shank to optimize ground contact for a transition that puts the "oo" in smooth. Finished with fresh colors and hot looks, Mr. Belvedere's got nothing on this shoe.
