ZIPZ to donate 18,000 pairs of shoes for deserving children worldwide

ZIPZ Founder Jerry Stefani stands in front of several cases of ZIPZ Shoes to be donated this month.
Orange County-based ZIPZ Shoes will donate 18,000 pairs of their state-of-the-art, interchangeable shoes valued at $300,000 through the nonprofit organization Soles4Souls this week. Jerry Stefani, creator and founder of ZIPZ Shoes says, "The result of changing styles and patterns from our 2008 inventory will give thousands of less fortunate children around the world the first look at some of the newest and hippest shoes on the planet."

ZIPZ Shoes is a unique system where the shoe tops and bottoms -- "covers" and "souls" as ZIPZ calls them -- are interchangeable to create different combinations. The separate pieces are available in a variety of patterns, styles and colors in toddler, youth and adult sizes.

The shoes are currently being sold in numerous worldwide retailers and will appear in multiple United States retail locations this fall to begin their nationwide launch.

Nashville-based Soles4Souls collects and distributes free footwear (both new and 'gently worn') to people in need around the world. Since its inception, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 5 million pairs -- currently one pair every 13 seconds -- to people in more than 125 countries, including Honduras, Romania, Thailand, The Sudan and the United States.
