Hi, I saw on here somewhere that someone was asking about Oddshoes and what they should do with them or where could they get them - typically I can't find the thread it was on.

Anyway, my names Jo and I run a facebook group called Jo's Odd Shoes. It started because I can only wear one shoe (I've got CRPS amongst other things and I'm shortly going to have my leg amputated)

I got a group of similar people together to swap their Odds, rather than throw them away.  Now we have about 330 members and are getting Odd Shoes donated from lots of the big manufacturers.

If this is something that would help you then please come along and have a look.  We  don't charge for the shoes, just the post & packaging.

Theres a couple of questions to answer before we let you in, but that's just so we can keep a review on the safety side of things.

    That is amazing, I wonder if you have written to various charity shops as well to ask them for the odd shoes, also what about house clearance companies after someone may have went in to care or has died, if you have a few local to you it might be worth getting in touch with them and see if they come across anything like it they can donate.
    Hope this gets bigger and better for you :)
