Like most runners i end up with a collection of decentish trainers that are no use for running in (at least by me) but are fine for walking in.

Is there any charity that makes use of such shoes? i would imagine that they would be of value to someone.

- some charities collect them to send to Africa - there used to be a link on fetcheveryone.com but I can;t find it. I'll investigate.
- Runners Need shops collect old shoes for charity purposes
- failing this, I know some dodgy chinese restaurants who slice them very thinly and pass them off as deep fried squid...

Yes there is, it's a guy in the Army who has basically worked out in Africa and sends old trainers out there for people to use.

Can't find his contact details, but as soon as I've found them I'll let you know.
