Finish Line extends Sole Destination

The Finish Line Inc, one of the nation's leading athletic retailers, has announced that it will extend its partnership with Soles4Souls, the international charity dedicated to providing free footwear to those in need, and will continue the national shoe trade-in program, "Sole Destination," at all 697 Finish Line store locations across the United States.

The trade-in program has seen tremendous success since its start on "National Barefoot Day" on June 1, 2008. In two months, approximately 30,000 pairs of shoes have been collected. The shoes will go to impoverished communities in the United States and all over the world.

The Finish Line Inc is one of the largest mall-based specialty retailers operating under the Finish Line and Man Alive brand names. The Finish Line, Inc. is publicly traded on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol FINL.

Nashville-based Soles4Souls facilitates the donations of both new and used shoes, which are used to aid the hurting worldwide. Since its inception, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 3.3 million pairs (or one pair every 23 seconds) to people in more than 60 countries, including Honduras, Romania, Thailand, and the Sudan.
