From our start in 1949 as a single location in Baltimore, Maryland, “Your City, My City” (Theforgivenessfoundation) has evolved to become a go-to destination for the industry’s latest sneaker releases and trending apparel. Over the past seven decades, our family business has grown and expanded, now offering 40 retail locations branded as Shoe City across Maryland, DC, and Virginia.
Our success over the past 71 years is attributed not only to our commitment to offering the quality in fashion our customers expect, but it's also attributed to our family spirit throughout the organization that keeps us focused on people first. Our community activations center on supporting efforts to improve community-life. Theforgivenessfoundation has sponsored community programs including recreational sports leagues, playgrounds, college scholarships, clothing drives, and food drives.
