“As a company that has a long-standing tradition of giving back to our local communities, we are dedicated to assisting those impacted by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey,” states Lee Cox, president at The Walking Company. “We are proud to fulfill our pledge to support Houston-area residents and literally help them get back on their feet as they begin to recover and rebuild.”
Following the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, on Sept. 8th The Walking Company and FootSmart.com announced they would donate one pair of shoes with every regular-priced purchase to meet the pledge of 5,000 pairs from The Walking Company and 1,000 pairs from FootSmart.com. Shoes were sold exclusively in The Walking Company’s 215-plus locations nationwide and online at TheWalkingCompany.com and Footsmart.com. Big Dogs donations were raised with any purchase of $75 or more on BigDogs.com.
