Day Without Shoes!

On April 8, 2010 we’re planning something big. Yes, we’re a shoe company… but for one day, we’ll be asking people around the world to ditch their shoes. Take ‘em off. Leave ‘em at home… and go one day without shoes.

Sure, it’s a little strange. You’re bound to get some funny looks- people asking you “Uh, where are your shoes?”. But at that point, you’ll be able to proudly inform them that millions of children around the world go barefoot every day. Not because they chose to, but because they have never been able to own their own pair of shoes.

The gravel will hurt, the pavement will be cold. You might step on something that makes you say “OUCH!” But that’s the point, isn’t it? Its hard without shoes and its our responsibility to educate our friends and communities.

Visit the official One Day Without Shoes website to learn the facts, browse through photos and videos, and register your support for this world-wide event.
