A: There are several ways you can reuse or recycle them. Here they are:
- Take them to Goodwill or the Salvation Army or another thrift store is they aren't too worn out for someone else to wear. You could also donate them to a local homeless shelter.
- Donate them to Nike's Reuse-A-Shoe program. They will recycle the rubber in the shoes to be used to build tennis courts, running tracks, and other sports complexes that use rubber material.
- Use it as an alternative to buying a new dog toy. Dogs love old shoes.
- Save them to wear when doing dirty work like painting or staining, mowing the lawn, or other dirty jobs. You don't want to ruin your nice pair!
