I use boots and tennis shoes as planters in my garden in the summer,,,they hold the water well and are an unusual conversation piece. The old boots are great! I have placed them near doors and in odd spots to fill in till the flowers dies or the new one grow!

Set them aside to wear when they are most likely to get soaked while doing a job. That will save better ones.

If they have velcro fasteners, carefully cut the stitching to remove the velcro strips. Each one can be used as a cable tie for so many things. They are strong and easy to use.

If they have laces, remove them and save them for replacements in another pair of shoes or for use like any strong cord.

There is a garden center near our house that uses old tennis shoes to pot small plants in. You put them on the porch or deck and it looks really cute, especially the childens shoes! - Jackie

When you have old or unwanted items--shoes clothes or any thing else give them to the Goodwill or Salvation Army stores or the neighborhood thrift shops. Your junk is someone elses treasure. - Mabel
