I have several pairs, most very worn which my DS wore from 18 months - about 3 and a half, so various sizes, degrees of wear. I never threw them out for some reason, probably because they were so effing expensive.

Before I take the plunge does anyone have anyone have any thoughts? Unlikely I know, especially as DS has a narrow foot size (F) but you never know.

You could ask your Physiotherapist, she may suggest something?

Maybe a shoe recycling bank?

yes... ! I have a friend who takes used equipment to the Gambia every year via a charity called Hidden children... they collect used equipment of any kind, including piedros, splints, anything..and it is used in an orphanage amongst other places.. they can reuse splints (remold them I think) and reuse boots as they are.

If you are interested PM me and I'll put you in contactsmile

Medusa, that is an excellent suggestion, may I also have this contact?

Yes..just waiting for my friend to get back to me with the contact she uses for the Hidden Children

Our old physio (married to a vicar) organises them to be sent overseas too. Dont know if your physio knows of ways they can be recyled abroad?

Hi - I realise this is an old post, but we have a selection of boots in good condition that we'd be glad to pass on for reuse. We're in the MK area if anyone still knows of good home.
