Soles 4 Souls

Paul Grangaard

President and CEO


At Allen Edmonds we have much to be grateful for. There's our 94 year heritage, our generational inheritance of great design and craftsmanship, our reputation for high quality products and service, and the now nearly 750 people in production, distribution, retailing and customer relations we employ in the USA who keep it all going. Plus, Allen Edmonds' strategies and growth have created many more jobs with our suppliers and other companies with which we do business. Much to be grateful for.

Gratitude engenders responsibility. In this context, then, I'm proud of the work we do for those less fortunate through our longstanding partnership with Soles4Souls.

Soles4Souls is a not-for-profit agency committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. To date Soles4Souls has distributed 26 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries around the world and in all 50 US states. That's a huge number and, as a company that makes hundreds of thousands of shoes a year, we should know.
