In order to distribute the shoe that grows, we rely on individuals and groups – like churches, nonprofits, schools, and clubs – who are already travelling to and serving kids in need. These same people help us keep making more shoes by donating (or fundraising with us) to cover the cost of as many pairs as possible.
Every $15 we raise covers the cost of one pair of our long lasting shoes, so you can take MANY pairs with you. We’ve even designed a rolling duffel bag that holds 50 pairs of The Shoe That Grows which can be checked on any airline, making it simple to take The Shoe when you go.
If you’re serving kids in Kenya or Ethiopia, we’re starting to make the shoes locally in those areas, and may have them available for you when you arrive. We also ship internationally if it makes sense to do so (although this can be a more complex and expensive process).
Here’s what you need to do:
1. Fill out the basic form below and our Partnerships Coordinator Logan will get back to you within 24 hours. Or, if you are ready to receive the shoes now, click here to give us all the information we need along with your donation, and we’ll get shoes shipped to your U.S. location usually within about a week.
2. Want to start fundraising? We have a free and easy way to create an online fundraising page that you can share with potential supporters. And every $15 raised means we can send you a pair of shoes to distribute. Click here to get started – Logan will follow-up with you afterwards and send you a sample pair of The Shoe, along with other tools to help you fundraise!
Thanks again for being willing to help! We’ll watch for your information shortly. You can also call us at 208-697-4417 to talk through the process with our team!

We are committed to creating shoes designed specifically for kids living in poverty all around the world.
The original version of The Shoe That Grows is a somewhat open-toed design and sandal-like. This works very well for children in more temperate climates, both dry and wet. For children in areas with cooler seasons, many wear socks with the shoes.
But we’re also in the process of designing a more fully enclosed version, providing more warmth and protection for kids that need it. More to come!
The shoes are available in 3 main sizes.
Our youth small size starts fitting kids between 3-5 years of age depending on the child and usually fits up to about 8-10 years of age or US toddler sizes 11 up to about a women’s size 3.
Our youth large size starts at about 8-9 years of age and fits to about 14-15 or into adulthood. It grows from about US women’s size 2.5 to about a size 8.
Our adult size starts at about a US men’s size 6 to about a men’s 11.
Whether you work with a nonprofit/NGO, are a church, a school, club or an individual that wants to help get shoes to kids in need, we’d love to connect with you and share more!
