What Type of Shoes Should You Buy?
We’re asked this question a lot. Please purchase athletic/tennis shoes (no boots or slip-ons please.) What children want more than anything –regardless of their set of circumstances – is to fit in with their peers. Christmas Shoes kids (especially those in middle and high school) long for the same brands and styles all the other kids are wearing. When our children open their Christmas Shoes gift box, we want them to feel loved and special, and proud of their new shoes.
Please DO NOT GIFT WRAP the shoe boxes. We place each pair of shoes, along with new socks, a toothbrush and toothpaste into a specially decorated, red Christmas Shoes Ministry box.
When sponsoring and shopping for a child, we’ll supply you with the name, age, shoe size and gender. While we do supply you with the child’s shoe size, we recommend that you refer to the chart below to make sure you are buying the right size. It’s important to note that some stores size their shoes differently. A lot of children wear adult shoe sizes. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 864-982-7649 or email your questions.
