Buy Pre-loved, sell, swap or freecycle shoes
- See: Clothes
It’s always best to pay for a high-quality pair of shoes, as they won’t wear out easily. It is also more likely that good quality shoes can be re-worn, swapped or donated, rather than ending up as rubbish.
- Keep your shoes in use for longer by keeping them repaired and restored.
- Find a shoe repair shop near you here.
- DIY shoe repair.
End of life and recycling:
- Schuh and Clark’s accept old shoes, which are recycled through Recyclatex. Recyclatex partners include textile and shoe dealers who deal in second hand items which they export to developing countries for re-sale.
- If your shoes are in poor condition and can no longer be repaired, restored or donated to charity, they should be disposed of in your rubbish bin.
