2023        Circular sole in production:
AUG         Our new soles are now available for resoles in women's sizes.


 

Together with the University of Chemnitz and our sole manufacturer, we have succeeded in producing a sole with a recycled content of about 50%. After a long test phase, our new recycled sole is now also available in our repair service. Resoles can now be made with recycled old soles from previous resoles.



From the design process in the early nineties of our first closed-toe shoes, we had a goal to recycle our soles and took a promise from our manufacturer that we could come back with the soles we collected. It was to be a long road, almost 30 years, before we found solutions to make good on that promise. Initial tests have shown that the recycled soles can also be reintroduced into our cycle.
