rebirth / recycle shoes

rebirth
rebirth

We used a large number of Tetra Pak and Retort pouch every year in the world. And Tetra Pak or Retort pouch is poisonous and difficult to be separated, if we litter it into the nature.
The shoes are the rebirth of abandoned Tetra Pak .
The concept of these shoes is to make the part of expiration date printed on the abandoned Tetra Pak to be one of the shoe body. And the other parts of the shoe body are made by Tetra Pak recycle products. Tetra Pak is Waterproof that is very good material to shoes. Moreover, the expiration date of each abandoned Tetra Pak is different, we use different Tetra Pak and expiration date of it make every pair of shoes be unique, every pair of shoes has own identified number. Last but not least, we hope customers can pay more attention on recycling when they wear these shoes.
