Meet our Founders, Brothers Ty and Zak

To us, basketball is more than just a game. We started Sharing Shoes to provide equal footing for kids in need; and so they can experience basketball as a source of discipline, patience and teamwork. We believe these skills are essentials for everyday life. By raising local awareness about the rising cost of sports and promoting community-driven action, more athletes can experience the benefits of playing basketball.

Basketball has been more than just a game for me. It has provided valuable life skills and has given me the discipline to succeed in anything that I do. I hope that Sharing Shoes will provide an equal footing for kids in need of basketball shoes, so they can experience the same. - Ty Wilson
