We're proud to support Sal's Shoes, a charity who find new feet for preloved children’s shoes.
There are 300 million children in the world for whom walking with shoes is a rarity. This makes them extremely vulnerable to infection by parasites, such as hookworm; while injuries to the feet and ankles can lead to ulcers and other conditions which are almost always left untreated. Without shoes, many children are not permitted to attend school.
Sal's Shoes cross continents to make sure that used, loved (and barely worn) outgrown shoes are delivered straight from you to those in need.
Sal's Shoes have found new feet for almost 1,500,000 pairs of shoes in 43 countries around the world, including the UK.
At Solillas we often find we have pairs that have been worn, on display in stores or our showroom or have done the rounds on press visits. These shoes can be worn again and are donated to Sal's Shoes to distribute across the world.
