"Upcycling"-to revive garbage. Concretely: Old nylon tights turn into shoes with a sole made of bicycle tyres. Especially nylon tights are a popular throwaway product because it´s not difficult to get a ladder in the thight. The complicacy was to manufacture the nylons into a durable and sturdy material but also leave it comfortable and flexible for the foot. Thanks to a specially developed technique it is possible to make the whole upper complete with seams out of old nylons. Holes and ladders in the tights are immaterial for the production you don´t see them at the final product.
