We’re so excited to announce that our Shoes for Good campaign is back!

We’re calling on the running community to donate used or new running shoes to our Shoes for Good campaign. These shoes will be donated to people who really need them, in Cape Town they’ll be donated via the JAG Foundation and in Joburg it will be via Play it Forward Jozi.

Head on down to Jack Black’s Taproom and the accounts marked with an * below, donate your pre-loved shoes, and we’ll give you a pint on the house.

If you don’t have any shoes to donate, not to worry, you can still support the JAG Foundation by ordering a pint from our Pint for a Purpose tap at Jack Black’s Taproom, where a portion of the proceeds will go directly to this incredible organization.

That’s not all! This year we’re stepping it up with a killer lucky draw competition too. When dropping your shoes at any of our drop-off locations, you can take a pic of the drop & enter our online comp to WIN an epic Outdoor Hamper valued at R11 400!
