Nine West Vintage America Collection is Proud to Support Soles4Souls

Residents across the U.S. are invited to recycle their 'gently worn' shoes for people in need.

As part of the launch of the Nine West Vintage America Collection, Nine West and Soles4Souls are stepping up their partnership to collect gently worn footwear to benefit those in need. From September 9, 2009 through September 24, 2009 customers who bring in a pair of gently worn shoes into any Nine West retail store nationwide will receive 15% off any purchase of $75 or more, which can be used online or in-store. All 192 participating Nine West stores will donate the recycled shoes directly to Soles4Souls.
In keeping with the authentic spirit of the Nine West Vintage America Collection, Nine West is proud to support Soles4Souls and help those in need worldwide with the gift of shoes. Nine West and Soles4Souls will work together to raise awareness and inspire others to make a contribution.
"Soles4Souls' mission is for people to use the shoes taking up space in their closets to change the world one pair at a time," Elsey said. "We are pleased to be partnering with Nine West and encourage all of our other partners to 'STEP UP' and get behind our call to action. Donating gently worn shoes is one of the most simplest yet profound gifts you can make, and it will greatly improve someone's life in the most difficult of times."

"As part of our ongoing partnership with Soles4Souls, we are thrilled to bring this program to Nine West consumers nationwide and enable them to join in the mission of recycling shoes and giving back to the community," said Jay Friedman, CEO Jones Retail Corporation. "Philanthropy has always been part of our company's DNA and with the help of our consumers we anticipate donating a lot of shoes to those in need."

Every 13 seconds, Soles4Souls, Inc. gives away a pair of shoes to someone in need. The shoe charity has earned glowing endorsements from Hollywood stars and professional athletes, but the people who truly make the non-profit organization effective are those who clean out their closets to personally drop off their 'gently worn' shoes at a participating location. It is estimated that Americans have 1.5 billion pairs of unused shoes lying in their closets. Soles4Souls can use each and every one of these pairs to make a tangible difference in someone's life.
