Where does SneakerCycle get the sneakers?
As the largest sneaker thrift store and reseller of used sneakers in the U.S., we have a multi-faceted approach to product acquisition. Our primary source of supply is our Clean Out and Recycling service that we offer to our customers, as well as any individual or organization in the U.S. who wants to help us keep used footwear out of landfills. We also partner with retailers and brands who are looking for innovative recycling and resale solutions to help their customers and their business operations.

How does buying pre-owned sneakers from SneakerCycle help the environment?
When you purchase a pair(s) of used sneakers from SneakerCycle, you are extending the life of a sneaker that might have otherwise ended up in a landfill. You are also helping reduce the need for brands to manufacture new sneakers, which helps decrease greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and preserves water, a vital natural resource.
