Poetry topic idea: Worn shoes

Today’s poetry topic idea is worn shoes, in other words, shoes that are worn out.

This idea could lead to many poems.  For example, a poet could write about someone training for a marathon, and wearing out their shoes.  A poet could also write about someone engaged in some sort of repetitive walking, like at a job, and talk about their shoes wearing.  A poet could instead write about the moment worn shoes are thrown away, and symbolism involved in that.  A poet could also write about someone having worn shoes, and not being able to get new ones.  A poet might write about, someone who needs shoes, and them getting a worn pair.  There are many other ideas as well.
