WHAT DO YOU DO WITH SHOES
All you do is buy them at stores, ya really easy. Lots of people have more than one pair of shoes. Well think of all you do and can do with your shoes.....you wear them, donate them, write a story/poem/project about them! So lets say you have a pair of old/extra/unliked shoes what are you going to do with them?

SO NOW WHAT
Now when you see shoes what will you think of? Will you think of donating them, how it was made, the brand. All I know is you won't think of it as just the thing you buy anymore.
