DLS Outfitters, the New York-based buying office representing 160 men’s and women’s specialty stores, has formed a partnership with the charity Sole 4 Souls to help the needy find footwear.
The participating stores across the United States will collect shoes in what the partnership calls “a simultaneous national shoe trade-in.” David Grabin of Soles 4 Souls will be presenting the concept to the buying group this week in Las Vegas. He will be speaking at both DLS breakfast meetings: at The Exclusive, this morning Sunday, August 26th, at the Venetian Hotel, Palazzo Meeting Room M; at Magic, Monday, August 27th, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Meeting Rooms N236-N238. Both meetings begin at 7:30 AM.
Soles 4 Souls helps bring new and used shoes to communities worldwide through individual donations, retail partnerships, footwear manufacturer partnerships, and community organizations.
