Reusable or not?Subscribe
I personally am a little weird about old shoes. I only donate old shoes that i had bought and never wore much for whatever reason. I don't mind hand me down clothes but i do not like hand me down shoes. OMG this purge i found those 17!!! year old pull-on leather boots in the bottom of the closet
Those boots were sooo uncomfortable i am not able to put it into words and they haven't seen the light of day over 5 years.
I´m all for donating and recycling, but i think just because people are in need doesn't mean they should have to settle for some one else's unhygienic/uncomfortable shoes. So my question is:
Are those 17yrs old leather boots:
- reusable items (donation bag)
- or unhygienic, gross items (regular/burnable trash)?
Need advice!! Please only serious answer!!
I say DONATE too. They are very nice and not at all worn looking. I donate shoes, coats, handbags, clothes and baby furnitture. I wash all the clothes and clorox all the baby gear and inspect shoes. My kids shoes are usually to ones being donated. Like the "worn once on so & so holiday". If shoes are worn through and beat up - no I would never give them to anyone.
Your boots look great and I am sure you will make someone very happy. A charity like dress for success would love them.Flag as inappropriate Posted by on 17th January 2008
Oh, yes, donate! The people who try them will get the chance to decide whether they find them comfortable, after all. No one will be forced to something they don't like.
(And this from someone who never lets her kids wear used footwear. Adults, however, are not growing, and can decide for themselves.)
