Like many people, they become my "everyday" shoes at work until they completely fall apart.

Sadly I have not found an option for recycling them in NZ yet :(

Too Much Water
Mine moved to north Wales, got a dog, and started making slightly off comments influenced by too much reading of the Daily Mail

Shoe recycle bin. Too big to wear for anything else.

My trail shoes are normally destroyed by the time I retire them, and my road shoes too ugly to wear as normal shoes so off to the recycle bin they go.

Some go the walking / gardening shoe route ....
Quite a few others end up donated to locals in holiday locations who either have no shoes or bits of tyre & string (as per my guide on Mt Kinabalu)

Got something to say?

Personally - my shoes, when they have come to the end of their "running career" - end up as garden...
