In 2019, the Archies team came across an amazing organization, Soles4Souls. Soles4Souls is an American non-profitturning unwanted shoes and clothing into opportunity, redirecting them from waste and putting them to good use – providing relief, creating jobs and empowering people to break the cycle of poverty.
Everything Soles4Souls stands for, Archies values too. We wanted to assist them in providing relief to people around the world, fighting poverty, looking after the planet with recycled clothing and shoes, and through this empowering women around the world.
So, in 2019, we made contact with the team at Soles4Souls to see what we could offer. That first chat turned into more conversations and eventually the partnership we share today, which saw us provide 25,000 pairs of Archies Arch Support Flip Flops/Thongs to people in need around the world.
“We love working with brands like Archies, who make great product but also recognize how that product can be used to make real impact. It’s also a huge benefit to have the RIGHT product in the right places, and Archies delivered. Soles4Souls and our partners on the ground are incredibly grateful,”Buddy Teaster, Soles4Souls President and CEO said.
Since 2006, Soles4Souls and it’s partners have kept more than 51 million pairs of shoes from going to waste, and have distributed them in 129 countries - and that’s something we are proud to be a part of.
We are looking forward to continuing this partnership and providing more Archies to those who need them most.
