Our Social Purpose


Buy a Shoe, Donate your Own Shoes

At the heart of Soleful Shoes is our social mission, purchase a shoe and donate a pair of lightly worn shoes to our charity partner, Dress for Success. We encourage our customers to donate a second-hand pair of shoes to support Dress for Success' mission to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

How does it work? 

When you buy a pair of shoes from our collection, choose 'yes' to donate your shoes at the checkout. We will send you a pre-paid postage bag with your order. Pop your used shoes into the postage bag and drop it off at your nearest Australia Post.  The shoes will then be on its way to Dress for Success Sydney.  Alternatively, if you are based in Sydney we encourage you to drop it off at the Dess for Success Sydney office.
