The first pair I decided to get rid of was relatively easy. I thought the shoes were ugly, but they're comfortable, have been worn about 10 times, and are in good condition. So I figured I could send them to Goodwill and feel relatively confident they wouldn't wind up in the trash.
But the hobo/hipster shoes? That are seven years old? That are falling apart? They presented a problem.
Okaaay ... so I throw them out. Right? Do I have any choice?
I'm not sure. Nike has a program for recycled running shoes, but the only website I found for recycling ALL shoes was in the UK.
If anyone has any advice, it would be much appreciated. I'll continue doing some digging as well.
