Shoes for​

Planet Earth!




An Australian based non-for-profit organisation started in 2009 by people who love to run and want to give something back. We're working together with local & international communities to provide recycled running shoes to those in need around the world.

​Your financial and shoe donations have provided over 80,000 pairs of feet the support they need in over 18 countries around the globe. We thank you very much for your contribution.

Once your shoes are received from you and from our collectors around Australia and New Zealand, we package and send them to homeless shelters, youth and female crisis centres, indigenous communities sporting groups, orphanages, churches, flood and other disaster victims. To locate a collector near you please check our Shoe Collectors in the Menu.


Established in 2009, our mission is to change the lives of over 100,000 people through the gift of a pair of sports shoes.


We accept sports shoes and funds to help various communities around the world.

Homeless shelters, youth and female crisis centres, indigenous community sporting groups, orphanages, churches, flood and other disaster victims and communities across Australia, New Zealand, USA, Asia and Africa.
