We collect all styles and sizes of new or gently worn shoes to distribute to youth in need across Chicago.
During your visit, bring in a pair of gently worn sneakers to donate, and you'll receive a special thank you, as well as exclusive item from our Sneakerhead University gift collection.
Potential donors are each given careful consideration by our sneaker curators. We want to ensure that any donation accepted into the Sneakerhead University collection is authentic and relevant to the exhibit strategy for 2022.
If you are interested in making a donation to Sneakerhead University, please select the link and your submission will be directed to the appropriate exhibition professional. Due to the volume of inquiries received, only sneakers that elicit further interest will receive responses.
