Please read below to find out how US troops deployed to Imminent Danger Areas and Designated Combat Zones can start the process of requesting sneakers.
When we are able to fulfill a request the sneaker order forms for our offering of 9 high quality athletic shoes are sent for brand and size selection. The number of requests we can fulfill is based on our resources. As resources permit, we will try to support a unit throughout deployment as need arises. However, the Unit Leader will need to contact us with additional requests. Order forms will be sent when we can fulfill the additional requests.
Please note: We only accept the order forms that Sneakers for Soldiers has directly sent to the requesting unit or team leader/individual.
The forms are emailed back to Sneakers for Soldiers for processing. Once forms are returned, receipt time varies depending on the number of orders we are processing, availability from the manufacturers, supply chain delays, and shipping timeframes. We try our best to get the sneakers shipped within 5 weeks from the date we receive your order forms.
Multiple requests within the same unit, require a unit or team leader to act as a POC. We communicate with one person, a Point of Contact (POC). Shoes are sent to the POC for distribution. The POC determines those most in need and completes the forms.
We suggest that POC’s prioritize/determine requests based on:
- Units/teams in remote locations
- Lower ranking/junior members needing worn out sneakers replaced
- Service members with worn out sneakers
Please email your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
