Dimmi’s Story


Dimmi started with a story.  As with many stories, it was triggered by a major event that profoundly touched a family.  When a member was diagnosed with ALS, a disease without a cure, that changed the course of the Carringtons,  Virginia family in the footwear  business.  And the story continues, transformed now with a purpose of doing good.

Richard A. Carrington 4th died of ALS at the age of 39, leaving behind a wife, three children, his extended family and countless friends.  In 2011, Consolidated Shoe Company, the  business he had run, began a new shoe brand, Dimmi, in his memory – and with the sole purpose of giving away 100% of its wholesale profits to medical research, starting with ALS.

This enterprise cannot be done alone.  Dimmi is gathering a growing community of retail partners, from small independents to big-box stores and e-retailers.  It seeks to gain more momentum – greater numbers of individuals to come behind the cause of Dimmi so we  can together fund and support medical diseases that face all of us, as individuals and as families.
