From Recycled Denim Sandals to Denim Accentuated Sneakers

Denim shoes are a great example of the adaptability of the material known as denim. Denim is very rugged and tough, and so, is an ideal fabric used for shoes and jeans. It is often used for casual shoes, but can also work great for sneakers or even dress shoes.

One of the best things about denim is that it can be recycled or 'upcycled' once it is no longer being used for its original purpose. For instance, if you incur a rip to the knee of your jeans you can rescue the remainder of the denim as a DIY project. In this case, it can be done to create your own pair of denim shoes. It also works great for making patchwork clothing or simply being converted into shorts.
