By partnering with Shood, businesses are able to deepen their local engagement and help our community put its best foot forward.
Shood is proud to partner with Fleet Feet, the source for the majority of the shoes we have distributed to date. Owner Jeff Wells not only has permanent Shood donation bins in his stores, but he also personally sizes and fits each person at our Shood Share distribution events.
Shood is fortunate to have Bombas as our sock partner, donating 1,000 pairs of socks per year so that each guest at a Shood Share receives a free pair of new socks along with their shoes. Giving back is at the core of Bombas’ business, donating a pair of socks to non-profit organizations like Shood for each pair they sell.

During the past 27 years, Sports Backers, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has developed programs and events that are designed to inspire people from all corners of our community to live actively. In 2019, Shood will place shoe donation bins at both the Marathon Training and 1/2 Marathon Training Team sessions for runners to donate their retired running shoes.
