KIM Kardashian West has decided to give away 1,000 pairs of shoes in aid of charity.

The 35-year-old reality TV star - who gave birth to her second child, a son named Saint West, over the weekend - has taken to Twitter to reveal she's making the generous donation to Soles 4 Souls, which fights poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing.

Referring to her husband Kanye West's design exploits, Kim wrote: "I'm up breastfeeding & watching this show Dish Nation. I heard the cutest story of a girl who is trying to find 1000 pairs of shoes -cont-

"to donate to this charity Soles For Souls! They helped her during Hurricane Katrina. I think I know the designer of Shoe of the Year Award!

"Kanye and I would love to donate those 1000 shoes to Soles For Souls. (sic)"

What's more, Kim - who also has a two-year-old daughter called North - pleaded for help to locate the girl she had heard about.

She tweeted: "I've been looking online to find this little girl so we can let her know the shoes are on their way....but can't seem to find her

"So whoever you are ....these shoes are for you! We will contact Soles For Souls! You reached your goal, so proud of you!!! xoxox (sic)"
