Thank you for visiting.

Why did we set this up?

 

According to a survey in the 1990s, around 20% of people have different sized feet. For many people for whom the size difference is small, it usually means a lifetime of nagging discomfort. For those with a a bigger size difference, it's just not feasible to 'grin and bear' the pain, so they usually end up buying two pairs of shoes of different sizes.

Hence, millions of unused shoes are being disposed of or gathering dust - shoes that could be used by others in a similar situation. 

There are several charitable organizations that provide mismatched or single shoes to people. Those organizations do very well with their limited resources and reliance on contributions and volunteers, but cannot guarantee that the pair of mismatched shoes will even be of the same brand. Other organizations have tried to match one person with mismatched feet with another whose mismatched feet complement the first person's. The problem with those efforts is that it is unlikely that both people will have similar tastes or needs in shoes.

We hope that you're able to find what you're looking for at OddShoeFinder.com - whether it's to save your self money, make some spare cash or just help out others like you.

Who are we?


This site was originally established by Kent Basson in 2007 whose sister had different sized feet. After seven years of hard work, Kent decided to hang up his 'odd-sized' boots and the site was purchased by the TR Trust, an Australian Family Trust Fund,  in 2014.

The TR Trust operates a number of websites including:

Cheap2Travel - a discount travel website

Stay Home Shopping - an online shoppers guide
