Buying shoes can become quite expensive, especially when they are easily outgrown or scuffed.

But Schuh has introduced a new scheme where you can get £5 off the next pair of shoes you buy, if you donate any unwanted or old footwear.

Donating unwanted footwear

In order to get the money off, customers just need to return any unwanted shoes to their nearest store.

This scheme is part of a collaboration with Recyclatex. The Reuse and Recycle Group says that it will recycle around 98 per cent of all donations.

Do the shoes I’m donating have to have been bought at Schuh?

The shoes you're handing in don’t have to have been bought from Schuh, so you can hand in a pair from any shop.

Which stores is this scheme available at?

The Schuh return scheme is available at all stores across the UK.

The money you will get in return for your unwanted shows will come as a voucher, which means you will only be able to spend it on products from Schuh stores.

Where can I use the voucher?

The voucher can be used in any store or on Schuh’s website.

Do I have to spend over a certain amount?

The £5 voucher can only be redeemed when you spend £25 or more, and the voucher can't be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount.

It’s unknown at the moment if this scheme includes sale items or not, but it’s reported that the donated shoes have to be in a ‘wearable’ condition in order to get the voucher.
