Tyre-d Shoe Project

The driving concept behind the shoes was to promote walking as a means of transport instead of taking environmentally unfriendly transportation methods. The range is made of upcycled car tyres and inner tubes, expressing this idea at its core.
The choice of material also makes them incredibly resistant to wear as the tyre provides strength whilst the inner tube gives the product the ductility necessary for a long lifespan.
The product range consists of four models of shoes, ranging in size and style in order to suit the needs and preferences of the user.
