    Recycled Tire Sole

    The sole in soleRebels

    Continuing an age old tradition here in Ethiopia, we collect & sort used tires. Then we hand cut each and every one into soles, ensuring a perfectly fitted sole that is long lasting and very comfortable.

    So a great indigenous recycling tradition endures, and best of all something that might otherwise go to waste now enjoys a dynamic + new + useful purpose while keeping our landfills less clogged AND SAVING CO2 from being emitted when landfill-bound tires are burned. Yikes!
