Country Lore: Sneaker Sandals

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


| June/July 2009


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.
