Pavers Shoes has donated more than 1,000 pairs of children's shoes to Shoe Aid, a charity that collects and redistributes unused and unwanted footwear across the U.K. and other countries in an effort to reduce waste and shoe poverty. Pavers' acquisition of Jones Bootmaker in 2018 brought with it a large quantity of children's footwear, but this footwear did not fit the company's plan, Pavers said. Shoe Aid receives requests for shoes from charities, schools and other organizations, which are fulfilled by donations like the one from Pavers. Since its founding in 2010, Shoe Aid has distributed nearly one million shoes worldwide. Pavers Shoes, headquartered in York, operates more than 170 stores nationwide and across a broad multi-channel network, which also includes pavers.co.uk, catalogues and TV. The company was founded by Catherine Paver in 1971 and is still family-owned today.
