My why

About Us



Maia was only 12 (2017) when she developed the idea for Lazy Sneakers. All she had was a passion to help others and a family to back her. Since the project has started, she has been able to provide sneakers for children, student athletes, families and social services. 

The name "Lazy Sneakers" calls out sneakers that are unused so they can be reused by people in need.


Maia observed that some of her peers could not participate in sports because they didn’t have the appropriate footwear. So she launched a project to free up unused sneakers. Lazy Sneakers was launched in January 2018.
