I say that if you have a couple of pairs, try to peice together enough to make a whole pair of shoes and then get soles put on so you can wear them like normal flats. That's what I'm gonna do with my old slippers when they get too holey.

I hung my first pair from a hook and put them on my wall. Yeah, they're pretty much kind of grey/pink and worn, but they have a nice sentimental meaning. The other ones I have just kind of sit around in my closet.

knitting blog? guilty.

I was thinking you could make a diorama/shadowbox thing for your wall.  Put the shoes in, along with pictures (of you or a famous dancer), ticket stubs, etc. 

And I like the idea of spraypainting and decorating.  Either for yourself or a fundraiser.

I have a friend who is a dancer, we went on an arts camp together in high school. For a camp art project, my friends boyfriend painted some amazing things on the shoes. Like black and white chequers and flames at the back of them and all sorts of crazy things, the shoes didn't match, they just went well together with contrasting patterns or they were the complete opposite done in similar colours. They were very popular and everyone wanted an old pair of my friends pointe shoes after seeing the work he did.

I think if you did something like that and hung them up it would be pretty cool.
