Bespoke for your company Whatever your needs are

We were asked to do a campaign for Timberland retails stores through the whole of Europe, this was an incentive for customers to bring in their old shoes into the shops and receive 10% off a new pair of Timberland shoes
Recycling boxes were sent out to every Timberland store in Europe including Timberland stores in Airports
The old footwear then had to be collected from the stores sent back to Africashoes and then Exported to Africa

We have containers sitting at the Pentland centre in London where any samples or any footwear or apparel is stored until full and then collected.
An agreed upon price per shoe is then donated last year £10’300 was raised and donated to charities Pentland support

We have exported whole lines of footwear when the manufacturer hasn’t passed quality checks, in order to put them to use rather than destroying them if a stich is out of place or the print is misaligned, sometimes careless glue marks and whole orders are cancelled

Sample Singles/Odd Footwear

Sample odds are usually size:
Children’s size12.5 UK 33 Euro
Ladies size 4 or 5 UK 37 or 38 Euro
Men’s size 7 or 8 UK 41 or 42 Euro

Sample odd shoes change all the time from season-to-season year to year, some of the iconic styles are changed ever so slightly from year to year.

Heels get higher or lower, thicker or none at all, flats, platforms, wedges, boots ankle knee length or thigh, flop flips, flip flops, toe post, toe open front, open front closed toe, open side, ¾ heel closed back, colours change.

Black stays the same for school, so Kickers are always popular.
Whatever is worn by pop stars are in fashion one week and out the next season.

Samples are normally manufactured in pairs, at some point they’ve been separated, one has perhaps been sent to a sales rep, or a Technologist and Designer, or drawn upon to be changed on final manufactured design.

If we can get the footwear collected from as many sources as possible there is a better chance of pairing them together again.

This is where we can help:
We have a contract with UK Mail and UPS International, we can collect one box of footwear or 40 ft. containers at a time.
We have a collect a sack system in place which will be billed to Africashoes just fill the sack

Retail Odd/Single footwear

Retail odd footwear are normally single shoes which have become separated from their pair.
This can happen during internet sales when customers order footwear and which are sent back without the correct packaging or possibly in the wrong box, if they’ve ordered two different sizes to try on.

Retail odds can also occur in retail shops when customers have tried on shoes and they have been put away carelessly.
Or on the shop floor they have been moved around and miss matched.

Large companies and retail brands can have huge volumes of single or odd footwear.
