Top 10 Best Images of Shoe Planters

This might just be me, but as a kid I hated just one single thing more than the dentist, and that was shopping for school shoes! Boring shops, full of boring shoes, with boring people fitting them, and boring conversions about why that shoe I was trying on isn’t “quite right for him” boring, boring, boring. And to be honest, I still hate shoe shopping! But I do have to wonder what ever happened to my old school shoes. The truth is they had become worn out and had to be thrown away, but maybe, just maybe someone picked them up from the top of the dustbin and did something very special with them indeed….

A purple shoe planter

10 – Succulent success

For me this kind of shoe are called “Crocks” but I get the feeling that people call them all sorts of things, whatever you call them this is a great way to keep them long after your feet have grown too big for them.

Childs Trainer shoe planter

9 – You will grow into them!

Whenever I got new shoes my mum would always say “They are too big because you will grow into them!”, well, it seems someone took that saying literally and grew an entire plant from a hole in the bottom of it, growing right through and out the top! Absolutely Amazing!

Purple Flip Flop Wall planter

8 – The green-fingered flip-flop

Over here in the UK we call these “Flip-Flops” because of the sound they make, well they won’t be making that sound anymore because they have now been turned into these amazing plant holders! Great idea and the best thing for them I say because I hate flip-flops!

7 – Ladder Safety: Always wear the right shoes when using a garden ladder!

Not only a great use of old shoes, but a great use of an old ladder to stack them on! Double recycling and double the pleasure it brings.

High Heal Shoe Planter

6 – The living shoe

What you are looking at is a shoe that is wrapped in cabbage leaves then left for the succulents to grow over! While this one does require a much higher skill set to make it does look like it has grown into this shape! Truly amazing if you ask me.

4 – Baby first steps in the garden!

For me, this is what it is all about, some old shoes used to great effect and what better shoes to use than the ones our little ones have grown out of! So many happy memories and they are easy to turn into something beautiful for you to remember every time you see them.
