Did you know that Americans have nearly 1.5 billion pairs of unused shoes in their closets? Astounding, huh.
The owners of Hubba Hubba boutique (the place for gorgeous, vintage-inspired women’s clothing) in Lakeview have decided it’s time to do something about the shoe overpopulation crisis. So, until November 30th, they’re giving customers 25 percent off any one item in exchange for an old pair of shoes. If you bring in five pairs, you get 25 percent off your entire purchase.
All shoes will be donated to Soles4Souls, a nonprofit that gives footwear to people who need it – often because of a natural disaster or extreme poverty.
So, pack up your old favorites, and give your gently worn kicks to a better cause than collecting dust.
