Looking for a great cause to donate your family’s gently used shoes to?
Want to make a difference in someone’s life? It’s easy! Donate a pair of shoes.

Every night, 1,500 people live on the streets of Milwaukee and many of them go without basic needs.
We use our passion of shoes to give back and make a difference in our own backyard.  

Q: What type of shoes does Stan’s Share-A-Pair Shoe Drive accept?

A: New or gently used shoes for men, women and kids.  Sandals, Athletic Shoes, Dress Shoes, Boots and even slippers.  There needs to be a life in the pair of shoes after you’ve used them.  


Q: Do you accept anything other than shoes?

A: In addition to shoes we accept new socks for men, women and kids.  Socks go to our local partners.


Q: Where do you accept donations?

A: We accept donations at all three of our Stan’s locations and our two New Balance Milwaukee.


Q: When do you accept donations?

A: We accept donations all year-round. We celebrate our Share-A-Pair Shoe Drive in February each year and gladly provide you an added bonus with each donation.


Q: Where do my shoe donations go?

A: Many of donations stay here in the Milwaukee community going to Repairers of the Breach, Father Gene’s Help Center, Milwaukee Rescue Mission, Hope House Milwaukee, and many non-profits that need shoes. We also send a number of shoes to Soles4Souls, a national non-profit that sends shoes around the world.


Q: How can my company, church or organization participate in the Share-A-Pair Shoe Drive?

A: You can plan a Share-A-Pair Shoe Drive anytime you would like!  Please connect with us at info@stansfootwear.com so we can help you plan your drive and organize a pickup or presentation to your audience about Share-A-Pair.


Q: How can my non-profit become a recipient of donated Share-A-Pair shoes?

A: We are always looking for more non-profits to help.  Please contact info@stansfootwear.com to let us know your needs and we work together to get more people in shoes!

Since we started this drive, we’ve collected more than 275,000
new and gently-used pairs of shoes from big-hearted residents
of Greater Milwaukee. We’re grateful to call Milwaukee our home.
