“We are really proud to be launching a new partnership with the charity Newlife.
This partnership will offer our customers the chance to recycle their old or unwanted shoes in our free-standing stores for a really fantastic cause.
Kurt Geiger will accept any shoes, from any brand, in any condition to donate to a great cause. Any shoes that NewLife are unable to sell will be fully recycled, with the materials going on to be used for socially responsible projects.
