Irvine-based Zipz Shoes recently donated 18,000 pairs – about $300,000 worth – of its interchangeable shoe tops and bottoms to the nonprofit organization Soles4Souls.

The unique shoes consist of what the company calls “covers” and “souls,” which can be swapped to create different style, color and pattern combinations. The shoes also range in size from toddler to adult.

“The result of changing styles and patterns from our 2008 inventory will give thousands of less fortunate children around the world the first look at some of the newest and hippest shoes on the planet,” says Zipz Shoes CEO and founder Jerry Stefani.
