ATTN Menfolk: Here's reason to upgrade from those grody kicks you've been clinging to since college: Allen Edmonds will extend an instant $35 off a pair of its American-made men's dress shoes with any donation of gently-used men's, women's, or kids' shoes. The 92-year-old shoe label, which opened an outpost on Chestnut Street in 2013, is partnering with Soles4Souls for this annual drive; Soles4Souls is a charitable organization that distributes footwear to those who need it.
If you'd like to purge your shoe closet without making a purchase, you can do that, too. Just swing by the Chestnut Street store to make your donation.
