If they`re broken, just cram them in with your usual bin garbage.

Re: How can I deal with my broken shoes

Usually they ask that clothes and shoes for recycling are in good condition so yours wouldn't be suitable if they are broken. You can just put them in the normal rubbish bag.

I've thrown out 2 pairs of shoes this season that were thoroughly worn out. Couldn't think of anything else to do with them.

I could have converted them into handy storage vessels or planted herbs in them for display on the balcony but I'm not that desperately tragic...

If you take them to the Reno shoe store you receive 1 CHF per pair given as a coupon to apply to your next purchase.There is a digital recycling box located near the cash register. I have done this many times with all the shoes we want to get rid of in the Reno store in Baden.

A nice option to get paid for recyling rather than the other way around.

Re: How can I deal with my broken shoes

Or if you love them you can get them fixed! I took all of mine to Coop City where they have a Mr. Minute. Not cheap but good results (cheaper than a new pair of good shoes in Switzerland)!

I didn't know that Vögeli offered the same service. Thanks for the tip!

Actually, it's not Mr Minute it's Mister Minit which you find in a lot of shopping centers:
