TOMS Shoes: The Shoe That Just Keeps Giving

We're a sucker for these ultra-comfy, colorful shoes with a purpose (and a conscience). Our favorites, a red pattern we snagged a couple seasons back, are so worn-in that they're becoming worn out. But we can't seem to part with them. And then we happened upon something on the TOMS site—just in time to give our favorite kicks a new life.

Take a peek at these great ways to repurpose your beloved canvas sneakers. Our favorite is the planter solution (remind anyone else of a different shoe-related vertical planter?)

For illustrated how-to's on these crafts, head over to the TOMS site. And maybe pick up a pair of vegan shoes while you're there (for every pair you buy, a pair goes to a child who needs shoes!).
