When the Air Jordan 1 High OG "Lost & Found" drops on November 19th, it's also a very special moment for us at AFEW, because it takes us back to our own origin.

Back then, we explored countless flea markets and scoured dozens of old sports stores to find sneaker treasures to sell out of our dad's garage afterwards.

With his inhuman work ethic, Michael Jordan has always served as a role model to us and has driven us to become better every day.

Because we believe that everyone can be a role model, we are planning something special for the in-store release of the Air Jordan 1 High OG "Lost & Found" and want to reward people with social commitment.

Therefore, together with the NGO Plan International Deutschland, we have combined each pair with a sponsorship, for which we are now looking for suitable sponsors.

We are looking for people who, in addition to their love for sneakers, also have a heart for children and teenagers and are committed to become socially involved.


To apply for the shoe in combination with the sponsorship you must do the following:

  1. Write an e-mail to: mentor@afew-store.com & tell us why you would be a good sponsor. Please do not forget to include your shoe size and address.
  2. By November 17th at the latest, you will receive feedback from us if you have been selected for the mentorship program.
  3. The winners of the sponsorships and the Jordan 1 High "Lost & Found" will be asked to come to Düsseldorf on November 19th in order to pay for the shoe and to receive the folder of your mentor child personally.

Together with Plan International Deutschland, an NGO that works with children and young people in more than 75 countries worldwide, we want to create something sustainable for the "Lost & Found" release.

More than 380.000 people actively participate in the form of a sponsorship with Plan International in Germany alone and thus give children the opportunity for a self-determined life. The main areas of operation are in more than 75 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.


Does the sponsorship involve any costs for me?

→ No, the financial part is covered by AFEW for one year. After that, you are free to decide if you want to continue the sponsorship.

What do I have to do as a sponsor?

→ We will connect you with Plan International Deutschland and your sponsored child. You then have the option to communicate with your sponsored child via e-mail using a Plan tool or by letter.

→ Plan International Deutschland informs you annually about the development of your sponsored child.

How long does the sponsorship last?

→ There is no time limit. Of course, we want a long friendship to develop between you and the sponsored child. The first year of the sponsorship will be financed by us and of course we would be infinitely happy if you will continue the sponsorship after the year. The long-term sponsorship enables a particularly sustainable improvement of the children's living conditions and only costs 28 euros per month.

What happens after one year?

→ We would be happy to sit down with all sponsors and the Plan International Deutschland team at the end of the year to see how the respective sponsorships have developed. Godparents who have established contact with their sponsored child should of course be honored.

Can I buy the "Lost & Found" without a sponsorship?

→ Yes, you can also sign up for the online raffle the regular way.
