A new chapter in the story of your old shoes

Do your bit with Vans Wear-On

Did you know your old, forgotten shoes can make a big difference?

When you take part in WEAR-ON and donate your unwanted shoes at your local Vans store, you’ll be doing your bit to extend the lifecycle of your shoes, while reducing waste, fighting poverty, and empowering people.

Here’s how:

#1 Bring your used shoes to the nearest Vans Store from the list below
Any brand, any condition. Just drop them in the dedicated box you will find in store.

#2 Hit 20kg? We’ll collect them
Everytime we reach 20kg in shoe donations, we’ll pass them on to our partner organisations: Soles4Souls and Fondazione Amici della Vita.

#3 Make a difference, together
Soles4Souls and Fondazione Amici della Vita will redistribute the shoes to people in need, to create jobs and sustain small businesses. See the impact you can make on soles4souls.org

After you dropped your shoes, you can claim a special discount voucher at the cash desk.

Every little bit helps. And every pair of old shoes makes a difference.
