The Shoe Project was founded on the simple idea that youth are change makers in the world
We are driven to do our part in making the world a better place for all
We've put shoes on more than 15,000 people and counting, giving back to our local and global community
Thank you to Veterans

We're Humble and Inspired
The Shoe Project started as a failed business idea. Buying and reselling shoes from Salvation Army, John Ferguson, 12, ended up with too many shoes and not enough customers. Without any profit, The Shoe Project later became a nonprofit, donating shoes to people in need in Cincinnati and around the world.
