Outsole is New Zealand’s first charitable sneaker convention run by Clean for a Cause to raise awareness about the charity and drive sneaker donations for future gifting to the community. It’s also an opportunity to bring together the sneaker community for a day of fun. The event is completely free and the cost to be a vendor is donating sneakers or a Koha. Any other raised funds on the day will go toward the Clean for a Cause Charitable Trust.
Clean For A Cause’s vision is to see this sneaker drive growing and impacting kids outside of Auckland, they understand that poverty does not discriminate so reaching all corners of the country is important with Outsole being held in big cities like Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and pop-up free sneaker ‘shops’ in smaller towns.
