runAROUND Freedom 4 by soleRebels
soleRebels combines heritage artisan crafts with modern design sensibilities.
Based in Addis Ababa, they are continuing an age old Ethiopian tradition of collecting and sorting used tires to make into shoe soles. Each sole is hand-cut, ensuring a perfectly fitted sole that is long-lasting and very comfortable.
The runAround Freedom 4 is crafted with hand-woven fabrics, lined with organic cotton for softness and comfort, and capped off with our signature recycled car tires soles and recycled truck tire inner tube laces.
As part of our b*knd series of vegan footwear, the runAROUND is made using no animal products.
