• Our Story

    Shoes on Sale began as a shoe sale in a tent in Central Park in 1994. It was an inspired call-to-action of FFANY and Co-Founders Jodi and Jerome Fisher to join the generosity of the shoe industry alongside compassionate customers to raise funds to find a cure for breast cancer.

     

    Now in its 28th year, Shoes for a Cure is the largest fundraising event of the shoe industry and has donated over $60 million to fund First-Step research at nine of our nation’s leading research organizations.
