A pair of shoes is something many of us take for granted. Shoes protect us from the harsh terrain and the outside elements. They can also be pretty pricey. That’s what compels Charlottesville podiatrists and the Salvation Army to hold their annual “Shoes for the Homeless” give-away.

“Shoes are the way that we contact the Earth. I think it’s a way that we protect our feet from the problems we have with terrain and Earth as is, and also they make us feel good,” Dr. Bryan Snyder, a co-chair of “Shoes for the Homeless,” said. Over the past 26 years, more than 100,000 shoes have been collected and distributed.

Bryan Synder, DPM, has been an ABPM Diplomate since 2005.
