Do you decide its time when the stink starts to overcome you and others or just plain dirty.Do you wear them till they fall apart on you?

It depends on the shoes. Nice, stylish, feminine shoes need to be replaced when they're no longer fixable. As far as my Dunlop Volleys (sneakers) go, they're painted, tattered and torn, but they are the mosy comfortable things ever. I only recently bought a new pair, but I still prefer to wear the old ones - I'll never throw them out =P

LOL, I never thought to bleach mine, as my friends and I all drew and painted on them. One was black and red, and the other was painted like camouflage =D I always wore them out in public as well. I'm young and a quirky dresser =D

Me too, I still have shoes that are worn out already and I still keep them. I feel bad throwing them away because of the money that Ive spent on them.

I have always worn my sandals until it is torn. Lol. Even though I have more than one pair of shoes and sandals now, I like to wear my favorite ones only. When it is already torn or could not be repaired anymore, I will switch and use the other shoes or sandals that I own. I will wear them as long as they are comfortable on my feet. If I find that they are not comfortable, I will buy another pair of shoes. Here in our country we celebrate the Aidh or Hari Raya Aidilfitri once a year. This is the time when everybody will shop around and buy new things for the celebration. On the first day or two, almost everybody wears new clothes and shoes. So even though I have good shoes, I will still buy a new pair just for the reason of celebrating Hari Raya. Lol. Well, that's me. Have a nice day, peanutjar.

Hi there. We would always buy our shoes, just before the fronts or sides of the shoes start talking/ open up...

i decide to buy new shoes when I see a good one. I don't wear my shoes until they dall apart on me. I want to take good care of my shoes and put them in shoe boxes. I don't want to abuse my shoes because I love them whether it's cheap or expensive.

When mine become too uncomfortable to wear anymore. Lately, I've had a hard time with shoes b/c my feet swell so much. AT PEACE WITHIN ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
