It's Gotta Be The Shoes 

A spark of inspiration.

An unforgettable experience.

And a brand new pair of shoes.

Who We Are

It’s Gotta Be The Shoes' mission is to connect with 4th – 8th grade boys and girls to help them create transformative acts and habits of their own. 

We are a community of volunteers, organizations, college student-athletes, professional players, and coaches who work together to fuel their dreams one pair of shoes at a time. 

The numbers tell the story.
