If The Shoe Fits - Keep It Out Of A Landfill!

, (PressExposure) July 11, 2008 -- If you are in need of a pair of affordable shoes, a mismatched pair of shoes or a single shoe in a certain style then Kent Basson has a deal for you. Basson founded Odd Shoe Finder.com on the internet to help people who need odd sized shoes or who are handicapped or injured. The innovative site has evolved and joined the "green" movement and now offers the opportunity to purchase affordable pairs of shoes, two shoes in different sizes or one shoe.

Basson kicked off the recycling theme at Odd Shoe Finder.com by recently purchasing 5,469 unused, brand name shoes and boots from an asset recovery company. The original size of the shoe lot was about 12,300 single shoes from which 1,900 matched pairs were created. This inventory originated from a sporting goods store that had many unsold mismatched pairs of shoes because some consumers with two different sized feet swapped out sizes before purchasing. These shoes will be posted on the site for a low price to get them into closets and keep them out of the garbage.

Users of Odd Shoe Finder.com are companies or individuals who want to contribute to the green movement by selling or buying shoes that would otherwise be thrown away. This joint effort by Basson and site users will reduce landfill space, protect wildlife, save energy and reduce water pollution.

In addition to being a "green" site Odd Shoe Finder is unique because it does not charge listing or selling fees as do other sites. The site is free to use and buyers and sellers are able to communicate privately to negotiate their payment and delivery preferences. A seller can post single or paired shoes listings by brand, style, color, size, which shoe, and an asking price. Buyers can search the site to find what they want. Outdated shoes are often available on the site for those who have a favorite shoe that is no longer made. Odd Shoe Finder.com allows links to manufacturer sites so buyers can find pictures and sellers have the option of taking their own pictures and uploading them.

Kent Basson created Odd Shoe Finder.com after watching his sister having to buy two different sized shoes after sustaining an injury. While researching the issue on the internet he discovered the problem is far more common than he imagined. Almost 10% of the U.S. population wears – or should wear – a different sized shoe on each foot and millions more need just one shoe. Combine this with the unsold inventory thrown away by retail stores every year, Basson realized this must result in millions of unused mismatched pairs or discarded shoes that ended up in landfills. Basson is available for interviews and other media coverage upon request. Press Release Distribution By PressReleasePoint
