Give 'Back to School' a new meaning

At Finn & Izzy, we believe that by thinking locally, playing locally, and shopping locally we help to establish the strong community foundation that supports us all. We know that we owe our daily success to the supportive community in which we live. A large part of that success is from the generosity of the families of school aged children in our area.

The 'Back to School' season is our busiest time of year, and it inspired us to create a program that gives back to our local schools every time one of our customers purchases a pair of shoes for their kid. This project has been so successful that we decided in the first year to extend the fundraising for the full school year, and it continues to be a year round program running from June 1st to May 31st.

The Give 'Back to School' A New Meaning Project: With every pair of regular priced shoes that we sell at a value of $40 and up, we give $5 to the school chosen by our customer from a list of 20 selected schools from the Greater Victoria area.

In its first year we raised over $3000 for our schools, and by the end of the second year we raised over $5000. We know that through word of mouth, and with the help of our participating schools, we can make every year a resounding success!

Our shoe selection is by far one of the best in the city and we carry sizes from infant to big kid 5. Whether you're looking for your little one's very first pair of shoes, or a pair for your opinionated 8 year old, our staff is always pleased to help you find exactly the right pair of shoes for your child's feet.

We have many fantastic shoes arriving every season, including brands such as Toms, Keens, Stride Rite, Asics, Geox, Hunter, Bogs, Kamik, Skechers, Native, Ugg, black leather school shoes and much more! Please encourage your school's families to come in and check out our great shoe selection and in turn, support a local school!
