Whether you are a longtime wearer or just discovering how good your feet can feel with Superfeet, you may not be surprised to learn that Superfeet support extends beyond just insoles. We take pride in giving back to global causes as well as our local community.

Superfeet donates 1% of annual sales and over 1,000 volunteer hours to a variety of organizations helping to shape a strong foundation for a healthy future, both for people and the planet.

Part of our annual giving includes awarding grants to organizations based near our headquarters in Whatcom County, Washington. The twelve grant recipients chosen for 2023 include organizations working to protect and restore important plant and animal habitats, provide food and housing to people experiencing homelessness and food insecurity, encourage and facilitate access to the outdoors for underserved communities, and so much more.
