Running shoes are not cheap no matter who you are, but for some people they're simply unattainable.
Donate new, gently worn sneakers, and worn sneakers to One World Running — an international nonprofit program promoting an awareness of health, fitness, and nutrition by providing running shoes to those in need in the United States and around the world. They will take your new or gently worn sneakers and send them overseas to someone who needs them. The shoes that are a little more loved (aka beat up and not suitable for shipment) are sent to Nike to be ground up and made into running tracks and playgrounds through the Reuse-a-Shoe program.
Regardless, you know your shoes will be in good hands, and feet. Send all your sneakers to:
