Country Lore: Sneaker Sandals

A reader describes how she made sneaker sandals from worn out shoes and sneakers.

A few well placed cuts will turn an old pair of sneakers into sneaker sandals.


My ratty sneakers had holes in them and some of my shoes were too worn to continue to wear. In addition, I really needed a new pair of sandals.

So I used carpet scissors and a matte knife to cut out parts of the old sneakers and shoes to make sneaker sandals. Or as I like to call them, “sneadals” and “shoedals.” They are great for wearing while doing yardwork.
