ROBERT Epstone is also the force behind Sole Men Indonesia, a registered charity aiming to provide funds to support accredited agencies and projects for homeless and underprivileged children in Indonesia.
Robert and his team go on barefoot treks around the world to reach their target of US$1 million for these children, and to raise awareness of the children's plight as well as global social responsibility.

Jeff Christie has aided the cause by penning a poem of support:

Sole Men are undefeated
Even when they are depleted
Mocked and scorned and oft mistreated
Lesser men may toe the line
Something lacking in their spine
They leave no footprint, leave no sign
Mickey Mouse may jump and squeal
Sole Men really are the deal
Be fleet of foot and strong of heel
Eppy Schleppy keep it real!
