About Us


One day, every child in America will be empowered to step forward into a bright future.

That’s our vision at Shoes That Fit. Every day we see how the gift of shoes is about much more than shoes. It’s the confidence children need to step forward with dignity and joy, prepared to learn, play, and thrive at school each day.

A new pair of shoes can be a life-changing event for a child. School attendance, self-esteem, and behavior improve. Physical activity increases. Smiles return. All from an often-overlooked item—a good pair of shoes. Our vision is that, one day, every child in America who needs new shoes gets new shoes, allowing all children the opportunity to reach their highest potential.


Your support has an incredible impact.

Gifts from friends and partners ensured kids living in poverty experience a childhood full of joy, dignity, and confidence through Shoes That Fit.
