I’m in Fromista right now and have decided that my Hoka hiking boots are too narrow for me now. They are gently used, but in great shape. I’d like to give them to someone who might be able to use them. If I took them to an albergue, would they put them in a free box for someone who could use them or does this not happen?
 
Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

The free box is certainly a good idea!

Most probably you will be going to Carrion de los Condes tomorrow?
Some albergues there are run by Sisters. They might know who in the local community could use decent shoes. The Sisters of the albergue Espiritu Santo ( very nice albergue ! ) for instance.

Buen Camino!

Just dropped the boots off and was invited to the sing-along tonight. Thanks for the great suggestion!

Yeah! Good to hear. I guess you are referring to this albergue and Sisters? Enjoy!


For such a small town Carrion de los Condes has quite some albergues run by nuns.
