Stories From the "Sole" -
Your Inspiring Athletic Shoe Stories

Did you ever hear the story of the high school girl who custom-painted several pairs of athletic shoes and gave them to special needs students as Christmas gifts?

Or the police officer who bought a new pair of basketball shoes and a ball for an 11-year-old boy who he saw playing outside with a flat basketball?

What about the man who gave the sneakers off his feet to a girl who lost her flip flops while running away from an airport shooter?

Athletic Shoe StoriesWe love athletic shoe stories!

These are all true, amazing stories that deserve to be shared.  And they all have one thing in common – other than generous and thoughtful people.  They all include athletic shoes.

Since I love athletic shoes, and I love writing about athletic shoes, these stories all caught my attention.  And I would love to find out if there are more stories like these out there.

I am looking for your inspiring, clever, amusing, and unusual stories that focus on athletic shoes so I can share them on this website.

Do You Have Your Own Athletic Shoe Story?

Do you have a unique story about athletic shoes, or do you know about something inspiring or unusual that happened involving athletic shoes?  It can be anything from a big, life-changing event to a minor occurrence or idea.  As long as it’s something that is memorable, noteworthy, or extraordinary.  And as long as it somehow involves athletic shoes.

Maybe you’ve recycled your old athletic shoes or donated them to a cause and you feel really great about it.  Maybe you bought new shoes for someone in need, or you collected cleats for young people who can’t afford them so they can play soccer or football with the proper equipment.  Do you do anything interesting or funny with your worn out athletic shoes?

If you have any inspiring or interesting, amazing or amusing athletic shoe stories like these, then please share them with me!

I’d also like to know what you call these shoes.  People from different areas refer to these shoes in so many different ways – athletic shoes, sneakers, gym shoes, tennis shoes, or something else entirely.  But you know what I’m talking about… your go-to shoes for comfort, sports performance, workouts, or just getting through your day.  The kind of shoes nearly everybody wears.
