Us runners with all of our shoes… we’re a cuckoo bunch, right? I currently have 3 pairs of running shoes in rotation (well, 4 if you count my trail shoes that are TRASHED and need to be replaced) and have at least 4 pairs that are retired, just occupying space in my closet. In the past I’ve waited until the RnR expo came to town and took a bag full of shoes to recycle, because there always seems to be a company at the expo that is taking old shoes.
But now there’s a new option: enter KindRunner… this is a really cool and unique approach to the “I always need new shoes and I need something to do with my old shoes” cycle I assume all of us get into.
Some benefits of the site:
- Free 3 Way Shipping: New shoes ship to you for free. If you need to return the shoes, that’s free. Donating a pair? That’s free too!
- Confident Runner Pricing: Already know what kind of shoes you like/want? Use this option to waive the free return shipping and get your shoes for an even lower price. You’ll still get free shipping to you, as well as free return-and-old-pair shipping.
- Kindness Cash Rewards Program: KCR are available to the customer after any footwear purchase. Upon receipt of their footwear order, customers have the option to place their old shoes into the KindRunner shipping box and place the pre-paid return label on the box for shipment back to us. Upon receipt of the label, we will scan the bar code and place the KCR onto the customer’s account for future use. Each return label (whether it contain one pair or 4 pairs of shoes) is worth $10 KCR per new shoes purchased. The KCR can be used to purchase ANYTHING sold on KindRunner and they NEVER expire.
- Expert Product Reviews: Each and every product we carry will come with an expert product review video done by an expert from the industry (shoe reps, running store owners, shoe fitters, etc.)
- Easy 365 Returns: A customer has 365 days to return any product, so long as it is in its original packaging and in its original condition. If you are injured and unable to use the shoe, if your doctor wants you in a different model because of orthotics, no worries… no questions asked!
Want to get in on this early? Yes… you do. Because if you are one of the first 500 customers you are enrolled in their “Free Socks for Life” program. As long as you are a runner, KindRunner will get you socks!
I’m honored to be an ambassador for this new site and I think this is going to be a great solution to two runner problems: I need new shoes! and what to do with the old shoes?
