Hi-Tec Sports USA, a world leader in sports and outdoor footwear, is proud to announce they will be donating 364 single pairs of shoes to National Odd Shoe Exchange, a non-profit organization that is a source of footwear for those requiring single shoes or pairs of differing sizes.
The National Odd Shoe Exchange exists to service those with injury, disease and genetic disorders, and for offering brand new single pairs of shoes to provide better quality of life that instills dignity into those affected by such diseases. National Odd Shoe Exchange is not a disease-specific organization, and it assists people due to a variety of causes.
“National Odd Shoe Exchange is not just about footwear, but about the people, quality of life, dignity and respect,” says John Ellis, Director of National Odd Shoe Exchange. “We’ve put a lot of hard work into our organization and are thrilled that Hi-Tec wants to be a part of it by donating such a large number of boots to those in need.”
“National Odd Shoe Exchange’s beliefs align with Hi-Tec’s, and we’re proud to be able to donate new footwear to help a good cause,” said Ian Little, Director of Marketing and eCommerce at Hi-Tec Sports. “All people deserve good shoes. It’s a difficult challenge to find just one shoe or different sizes, and we’re happy to help.”
