About Us


10/11/17 Update:

The Shoe Game Corporation is no longer a registered 501c3 organization but wishes to promote “good news” that don’t always get the publicity it deserves.  In the future, The Shoe Game Corporation may revisit donations but is not currently.

Please email me at ElliotMichaelHood@gmail.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!



The Shoe Game Corporation encourages professional athletes to donate shoes to major inner-city school districts among student-athletes that meet donation requirements (student-athletes must: 1. maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative gpa, 2. be a Senior, Junior, or Sophomore, and 3. meet certain economic conditions relative to their city).


The Shoe Game was founded in late 2009 with the intention of giving low-income student athletes the proper tools to get their “shoe game” on point. Many young athletes are forced to wear old beat-up shoes to practice and games, to the detriment of their performance. With the help of college and professional athletes that have shoes to spare, we can supply these disadvantaged student athletes with what they need to excel on and off the field. 

Mission Statement
