Why: This week DailyCandy helped me solve a life-long conundrum: a way to purchase shoes that doesnâ€™t end in total guilt and a long, sad parade of zeros in my bank account. Take part in SimplySolesâ€™s shoe recycling program by purchasing a pairâ€”or twoâ€”of designer shoes, and in return, mail a pair of your own gently-used, closed-toe shoes and save 10 percent on your total order.
Your worn shoes will be donated by SimplySoles to Suited for Change, an organization which provides professional clothing for women making the transition back into the professional world from homeless shelters, jails and rehabilitation programs. Now you can have those beautiful new Tory Burchsâ€™ (youâ€™d probably buy anyway) while knowing that your old shoes are making a real difference in another womanâ€™s life â€“- talk about a guilt-free way to shop.
