Recycle your old athletic shoes
Thinking about throwing out those old unusable sneakers hiding in your closet? Why not recycle instead of sending them to the local landfill?
Shoes that you recycle are ground up by NIKE® and made into carpet padding, basketball courts and track surfaces. See NIKE® Reuse-A-Shoe
Please give your “gently used” shoes to your favorite charity.
