Run Venture's Trade-In Programme
Give your running shoes a second chance
Clear out your old running shoes and receive a voucher worth up to £20* towards your next pair of new runners.
Alternatively, browse our second-hand shoe collection to get a great deal on gently used running shoes.
* Trade-in value is not guaranteed and must be in good working order. For full terms and conditions see below.
Here's how it works
Run Venture will inspect items brought in
Depending on condition, we then give you a gift voucher to spend in store, relative to the condition of the item donated
The item is then put in our pre-loved section to be passed onto the next person and get back in use, where it belongs.
Why it matters
Running shoes are an investment. If you are an established runner, then you already understand that a good pair of running shoes are the essential tools of the trade.
However, for many people just starting out on their running journey, the investment in new running shoes can be a barrier to taking up this fantastic activity. Many just start out by running in what looks like a running shoe, found in the shed or bottom of the cupboard, or even worse your kids' old school trainers!
Often gently used running shoes are ideal for those just starting out while you save for a new pair.
Approximately more than 24 billion pairs of shoes are made every year in the world (www.statista.com). Each shoe can have up to 60 different components, making them difficult to recycle. It can be done, but this is quite an involved process. By re-using shoes, we can prevent running shoes going to the incinerator or into landfill.
What can I trade in?
Most importantly, everything should be clean and in very good condition.
Best for trading in:
Stuff we can't accept:
Shoes missing insoles or with heavy wear (eg visible foot indentations)
What condition do my items have to be in to receive a credit?
All products will be inspected for quality and functionality.
We grade products in 4 levels: excellent, lightly worn, moderately worn, and well worn.
If your items require any sort of repair, are heavily stained, or have broken or missing pieces, you will not receive credit. Evaluation of the condition of your items is up to our discretion.
Excellent: Practically new; likely never worn outside: will receive a £20 gift voucher
Lightly Worn: Trail/road-tested a few times; minor wear visible: will receive a £15 gift voucher
Moderately Worn: Used for a season; visible wear: will receive a £10 gift voucher
Well Worn: Broken in; visible wear: will receive a £5 gift voucher
How will I receive credit for my items?
On completion of inspection of your item, Run Venture will write out a gift voucher relative to the condition, redeemable to spend on any items in store.
