  1. I’ve always hated throwing old shoes out, especially slippers. They’re always feel so snug and comfortable to wear, it’s hard to replace them with new ones. Your lovely photos of kiddies’ shoes brought back many memories of when my six were little. Old shoes and happy days.

  5. Worn shoes have character, man’s best friends, every step of the way. My Timberland boots were thrown out without my permission, after a decade of bliss. I’m still not over it.

      1. That is so awesome! My late mother kept ours for decades but threw it away when they sold the big old house.

        1. No, I’ll never get rid of them. My son can throw them away if he wants to after I’m gone.
