How much does shoe disposal account towards the world’s waste?

Any resources or links will help me out. I’m doing this as a project, so the more information the better.

    Americans throw away over 300 million pairs of shoes each year. Ironically, this is about the same number of children globally that have never been able to afford a single pair of shoes. Soles4Souls is a non-profit group that aids in shoe recycling by getting unwanted shoes to people who need them and can still use them. Clothing and shoes make up 8% of landfill waste worldwide.
