I have a pair of men's work boots I bought a while back that have finally been worn down - they were cheap pleather on the outside, waterproof at the time but the exterior coating has finally delaminated away from the cotton backer, the top is cracked and peeling, altogether a gross mess. I was using them for camping/hiking/LARP, but they're pretty useless now. I would trash them, but the soles are practically still new! Anyone have a use for repurposing basically-perfect boot soles, maybe into a new pair of diy'd shoes or something? Pretty much exactly look like these. I don't think they're worth taking to a repair store - the whole upper would need replacing and they only cost ~25$ to begin with.
Hi there, I'm doing research into sustainable gardening and upcycled planters for a university project and we're trying to get as many people as possible to fill out this questionnaire. The questionnaire should take no more than 10 minutes to do and anyone who does will be entered into a draw to win a £50 gift voucher of their choice. Thanks for your time, really appreciate it!
