Update: 4/27/2017 The shoe drive has concluded.
Donate old shoes from your spring cleaning at Arches Footwear
Arches Footwear loves assisting visitors to our store. We strive to provide excellent customer service, great products and a low-pressure shopping environment. Not only do we believe in helping our guests, but also the environment and the community of Columbia, Missouri. For this reason, we are hosting a shoe drive. This event will kickoff on Thursday, April 20, 2017.
Feel good and get a discount:
Beginning April 20th Arches Footwear will be accepting gently used shoes through Wednesday April 26, 2017. The plan is to donate the footwear to Columbia non profit Upscale Resale. By donating to Upscale Resale, this will keep shoes from being thrown away where they eventually end up in landfills. This is a flash shoe drive, so it won’t last long. We’ve designed the experience to be very easy. Think of this as a drop-off, pick-up event. Those participating in the shoe trade-in event, are asked to drop off any pair of shoes they no longer wish to keep at Arches Footwear during normal business hours, and pick up a coupon. You are trading in an old pair of shoes for a discount at Arches Footwear. Donors can trade-in any pair of eligible shoes in exchange for a BOGO (buy one, get one) 50% off coupon. The BOGO 1/2 OFF promotion is a coupon that you can use to purchase any one pair of shoes and get a second pair of shoes (of equal or lesser value) for 50% OFF* (some restrictions may apply, see coupon for details).
Directions on How to Participate:
- RSVP to the trade-in event on Facebook.
- Gather shoes of any type, as long as they are gently used, and not damaged. (Unworn shoes in their original box are welcome.) There is no limit on how many shoes anyone can donate.
- Drop off your shoes at Arches Footwear.
- Pick-up the limited time BOGO 50% OFF coupon. Coupon quantities are limited.

Arches Footwear is a shoe boutique on the south side of Columbia. Born and raised in Columbia, the owner, Nathan Fleischmann, runs the business. His dream of starting the brick-and-mortar store came from when he operated a shoe truck. His passion for the business truly defines his optimistic and hardworking personality. His love for the city of Columbia and his love for philanthropy inspired the idea of a gently used shoe drive. By working with a non profit organization, that serves those in need, the hope is the used shoe drive will make a positive impact.
