In 1921, a small footwear company was founded with the mission of delivering quality shoes, with premium service at a fair price. The original name Trade-at-Home came from encouraging shoppers to support (trade) in their local communities (home) instead of placing an order through mail-order catalogs. One hundred years later, Tradehome Shoes continues to thrive because of the support from local communities. As our employee-owned company continues to evolve, we have become increasingly focused on getting into our towns and getting involved. Trade-at-Home-Give-at-Home was born to impact people in the cities we serve.

In addition to the kickstart of the Trade-at-Home-Give-at-Home program, Tradehome Shoes has recently launched Century Apparel Company. This business aims to give back to people and organizations in each of our communities. Tradehome Shoes store managers individually pick a neighborhood organization to provide to. For every pack of Century socks purchased, a pack is donated to that chosen group.

We also have our Century line of shoe care products which are a Tradehome exclusive. We will be donating $1 for every item of Century shoe care sold towards the supplying of local schools in our communities with shoes for students in need. Our customers have the ability to nominate a school of their choice through the link below. We will collect this information over the year and a random winning school will be chosen in every community we have a store located. So, the more friends and family they tell to submit their favorite school, the better chance that school will be selected.

To nominate a school in your community that could use some help, click here.

We are so thrilled about our Trade-at-Home-Give-at-Home initiative! We are excited to give back to those that have supported us all these years. We believe that our community service and donation sock programs are just the beginning, and we are motivated to show our "Thanks" in as many ways as possible.
