RE-SHOES wants to provide an alternative, circular and sustainable solution for footwear end-of-life management.
Provide an alternative, circular and sustainable solution to give a new life to used shoes, by introducing virtuous practices as a new standard in the footwear industry supply chain. It’s the main objective of Re-Shoes, the ambitious project in which we are involved together with other international realities, coordinated by the Asolo company Scarpa.
The initiative will be developed over 36 months through a procedure that will make it possible to obtain raw materials from used footwear and production scraps, in order to create a new generation of high quality regenerated products, thus reducing the disposal and use of raw materials and aiming for zero post-processing leftovers.
