Footbalance Donates Cash to Soles4Souls Through Footbed Trade Program

Footbalance will donate one dollar on behalf of every participant in its “Sell Your Soles” promotion at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2012

San Diego, CA – Footbalance, an innovator in custom footbed technology, is pleased to announce a fundraising event at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2012 and the SIA Snow Show. At the Sell Your Soles event, Footbalance will donate one dollar on behalf of every OR attendee willing to exchange their old insoles for a pair of 100% custom-molded Footbalance footbeds. Each dollar raised will go to the charity Soles4Souls® to provide a pair of shoes for a man, woman or child in need.

Soles4Souls is a Nashville-based non-profit collecting shoes from the warehouses of footwear companies and individuals for distribution to people in need, regardless of race, religion, class, or any other criteria. They also accept donations for the “$1 equals 1 pair” program where individuals and businesses can donate any amount to outfit someone with a pair of shoes to protect from disease and help children attend school.

“People coming to the trade shows this winter know it’s time to upgrade their footbeds,” says Matt Kaplan, President and Managing Director of Footbalance North America. “So, this fundraiser offers up a great opportunity for them to make their feet feel better as well as their heart and soul. It really puts things into perspective. While we outfit trade show attendees with new footbeds, we are also helping global children, men and women who simply don’t have shoes at all.” Outdoor Retailer Winter Market attendees can stop by Booth #38188 to participate. SIA Snow Show attendees can visit Booth #223. Attendees can also choose to give any additional cash to add to the Footbalance donation for Soles4Souls.

With its North American Headquarters in San Diego, California, Footbalance was developed by a Finnish physiotherapist specializing in podiatric medicine. The system enables the rapid production of fully customized footbeds at retail stores in less than ten minutes. Available for fittings at shops and special events across the US and Canada, Footbalance footbeds support your feet in proper alignment to promote healthy foot function, improving overall body
