Share Your Shoes
Convert your excess inventory into emergency financial funds to help footwear families in crisis. Your product donation helps us provide urgently needed disaster, hardship and crisis relief to thousands of footwear families who are struggling right now. And, unlike other product donation efforts, funds raised through Two Ten's Share Your Shoes program are distributed directly to U.S. footwear employees in crisis, helping them keep a roof overhead and food on the table.
Any U.S. footwear manufacturer or retailer can donate excess inventory through Two Ten's Share Your Shoes program—and your product donation may have tax benefits.
We accept donations in any of these categories: New, Returns, Gently Worn Returns, Defects, B Grade, Closeouts, All Athletic/Athleisure/Athletic-Inspired, All Men’s, All Children’s, All Women’s. We also accept apparel and accessories (women's, men's and children's).
Athletic, athleisure, and athletic-inspired footwear typically generate the largest amount for Two Ten’s Disaster & Hardship Relief Fund.
Singles are accepted on a case by case basis. Donations of singles must be pre-approved and this should be noted on the donation form. Singles should be able to be paired since we are not able to resell singles.
Share Your Shoes accepts donations of any size.
- Donations under 1,000 pairs: To maximize funds generated to support Two Ten’s mission and ensure the cost of accepting a donation does not outweigh the revenue it would generate, donations under 1,000 pairs must be shipped directly to Two Ten’s donation processing partner, with the cost of shipping covered by the donor.
- Donations over 1,000 pairs: We encourage all donors to pay for the shipping of donated items in order to maximize the revenue generated to support Two Ten’s mission. For donations over 1,000 pairs, Two Ten and its logistics partner will work with the donor to coordinate a date and time for product pick-up from the designated facility.
We guarantee your inventory will be distributed exactly where you specify and in accordance with any conditions specified.

Depending on a company’s corporate structure, the tax benefit of donating excess inventory can be quite advantageous with the added benefit of knowing that you're making a difference for footwear families in need. Section 170 (e)(3) of the US Internal Revenue code permits regular © corporations to deduct the lower of: 1) The cost of the products plus one-half of the difference between the cost and the fair market selling price, or 2) Twice the cost. Section 170(e)(3) of the US Internal Revenue code permits “S” corporations or a partnership company to earn a straight cost deduction. Consult your tax advisor to determine what the deduction would be in your case.
