Pace Athletic are a proud collection point for Australian Non-for-profit organisation Shoes For Planet Earth - Which was started back in 2009 by a few legendary people who love to run and want to give back.
Shoes for planet earth have provided over 85,000 feet with a pair of shoes in over 18 countries around the globe. Once your shoes are received by Shoes for planet earth, they are packages and sent to homeless shelters, youth and female crisis centres, indigenous communities, sporting groups, orphanages, churches, flood and other disaster victims.
We currently accept shoe donations at all stores except for the Crows Nest Location (Due to space/storage limitations). For all of our store locations, CLICK HERE
6 Step Guide for Shoe Preparation
1 - SPORTS SHOES only please.
2 - NO HOLES AND GOOD SOLES. It is not worth shipping shoes to an orphanage in Southern Africa if they are broken! We want to send shoes that will last a whole winter.
3 - CLEAN! Would you like to receive a dirty pair of shoes? They can be hand scrubbed or washed on a short cold cycle in the washing machine. Best dried in the sun stuffed with newspaper – no tumble trying please as it destroys the shoe.
4 - TIED TOGETHER in matching pairs so we can find the other half amongst all the hundreds of shoes we have. No individual pairs in plastic bags or boxes please – just more to throw away.
5 - SHOE LACES & INNER SOLES – yes please.
6 - THANK YOU for helping us to change the world one pair of shoes at a time
