Summary

InYourShoes is a project born in 2017 from an idea of Francisco Grimaldi and the support of Giordano Bravetti. Its goal is to create a world running community that shares stories of sacrifices and success. This one sport creates an emotional thread between athletes of different nations. InYourShoes is a bond able to overcome boundaries with values that can be applied in sport as well as in the realization of personal dreams.

Challenge

In the moment in which an athlete donates his running shoes, he is also donating a piece of his own story, his own life, to somebody else. The shoes transcend their material value and become talismans containing the strength of spirit and motivation that help their owners to not give up in their darkest hours.

Solution

It is a hopeful gesture, a sign of love that connects the hearts of people separated by continents, who might never physically meet but who remain tied together by the shared meaning of their daily fights against adversities.

Long-Term Impact

The shoes are all firstly shipped to Rome from the rest of the world; the IYS team makes the selection and tags each single pair to create a link between the donor and the new owner. Then the shoes are packed and shipped to Nairobi where the team will proceed with the import into the country and start the long voyage to Iten.
