Shoeman Water Projects' Karl Johnson, "The Shoe Dude," transports a load of shoes to a moving truck to be taken from West Junior High School to St. Louis on Friday. Johnson estimates more than 10,000 shoes have been gathered in St. Louis, which will be delivered to a developing country. "I think it's important because there are a lot of people worse off than we are," Johnson said.
