As a child going through tough times, Rikki Mendias had holes in his shoes. A woman he met through a shelter noticed and gave him new ones. He remembers fondly the smell of them, fresh out of the box, and the feeling of pride he had when he wore them the next day. Something about the experience affected him so deeply that he became a huge sneaker fan and collector. But it felt meaningless. Then he gave a pair away to someone who needed them, and his future was revealed. “Hav A Sole” was born. “Hav A Sole” has since provided over 7,000 pairs of quality shoes to the homeless and at risk youth population, and Mendias continues to give. This short video shares his story.
