ShoesForSoleaWater 2

LaQuist strives to give back to the world around it by supporting socially minded business models like One for One, charitable organizations and causes like Solea Water, and sustainability and recycling efforts like Reuse-A-Shoe. Find out how by exploring the pages below.

One for One

LaQuist is a proud supporter of the TOMS One for One and their mission to improve people’s lives through business. Every pair of custom, hand painted TOMS purchased from LaQuist is matched by TOMS, giving a new pair of shoes to a child in need.

LaQuist + Solea Water

LaQuist has partnered with Solea Water® for a shoe line with a purpose. Each pair purchased contributes $15 directly to Solea Water®’s projects, providing sustainable clean water solutions  in ways that create jobs and bring to communities in Latin America.

LaQuist + Komen St. Louis

LaQuist has partnered with Susan G. Komen® St. Louis for a shoe line that shows support and shares the vision of a world without breast cancer. Each pair purchased contributes $15 directly to Susan G. Komen® St. Louis’s mission to save lives and end breast cancer forever.

Reuse-A-Shoe

LaQuist works to reduce its ecological footprint by providing information on shoe recycling and donation programs and encouraging recycling of shipping materials with each pair of LaQuist shoes delivered.

The Shoe Drive

LaQuist has organized a citywide shoe drive in its home base of Columbia, Missouri, collecting shoes for donation to Solea Water. Not only do the shoes help financially support clean water projects and entrepreneurs in developing countries, giving shoes a new life means that they will stay out of landfills.
