Project Run

Donate your pre-loved running shoes, we'll clean them up and pass them on to the proud feet of young South Africans embarking on their adult journey.

Our goal is to keep running alive. We want to empower & let young South African’s realize their own potential through running and other sporting activities. Through this, not only can we nurture talents but find talents & start a greater movement.

At Project Run we are encouraging customers and passers by to drop off less-worn, previously loved sneakers that just need a little love, care and attention to transform them to ‘as good as new’ sneakers for the proud feet of young South Africans embarking on their adult journey.

How it works  



Drop off your less-worn, previously loved sneakers
 at any of our branches at the designated drop-off point.



The Sneaker Shack will provide a fresh clean
to all donated shoes in order to look and feel brand new.
