What to do with old kids shoes? Answered

I have a few dozen old shoes that my kids have outgrown but are too worn out to donate. Any ideas for what to do with them?

Throw them into a sawmill, pound them into fabric, and make Instructables T-Shirts for everybody.

they have programs where you give them shoes and they use the rubber for playgrounds

Rubber carvings? One of those mobiles that make a shadow shape if the light is shining on it just right? There's an instructable on that somewhere around here.

Maybe you could buy some touchup tools for the shoes. New laces, a nice cleaning, etc... Then donate them somewhere.
