"Giving back opens your heart to others who need love!"

Who we are

Gotta Have Sole Foundation was founded by 17 year old, Nichols Lowinger in 2010, when he was just 12-years old. Through his foundation, Nicholas gives brand-new sneakers to children in homeless shelters across the United States so that they can go to school, play sports and have fun!

How to get in touch with us

What we are all about

We get the footwear orders from shelters across the United States, take the sneakers from our stock or purchase what we need, and if the shelter is close by, Nicholas delivers them to the children. Otherwise, he ships the sneakers and socks to the shelters. Also, if the children are still in the shelter and their feet grow, Nicholas gives them the next sizes.
