I've gotten used shoes before that I just gave away because well they looked so worn and just bothered I gave them away.
I don't mind clothes.. maybe cause I feel like it is hard to clean shoes.

I agree. Clothes that are in excellent condition yes.. shoes - no..
Only because shoes are worn.. more so than clothes. Dress shoes worn once or twice might be ok.. but everyday shoes, sneakers, boots, etc.. NO.. I rather buy new ones. I mean every one's arch is different and they lop to different sides..etc.. Most shoes people have tried to give to me were worn. I only give away stuff that is like new, mostly new.. kwim? I would not give someone anything that I would not have my kids wear. Just me..
