In Iten a pair of running shoes can change the life of an athlete. Their significance comes not from the material object that they are but more than that because of the feeling and the motivation that derives from such a special gift.
If you have running shoes you don’t use anymore – maybe you got them as a gift and they are too big or too small, maybe for you those shoes have run enough kilometers, or you simply have too many shoes and you want to make some space in your cupboard – well, in that case you can decide to give them a new life, make them run faster than you ever thought and perhaps help the new owner to win the next Olympic Games.
Rules to donate your running shoes:
- We collect exclusively running shoes (no sneakers, no other sports shoes)
- Shoes must be in good condition (no holes, no smooth soles)
- Shoes must come washed
- Put a tag inside the shoes with your name and surname, club/crew/society, instagram account and email (we will send you a picture of the new owner of your shoes!)
- Each pair must come together with a donation of 5€ to cover the expedition cost (email us for more infos)
Where to donate:
There are several collection points all around the world, check the list below and find your closest one.
If there are no collection points in your city send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take care of your shoes.
The donations will start on the 1st of January and end on the 7th of May.

Giving a second life to a plastic object is also a way to fight consumerism. InYourShoes raises awareness on the impact of plastic pollution in the world and you, by donating your shoes, can contribute to reduce wastefulness and to stop the black market of shoes in Kenya.
