urban RUNNER moc 2 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 urbanRUNNER moc 2 features AbyssinianPure™ suede leather upper from traditional small scale herders, hand-woven koba fibre edge wrap for awesome profile, and soleRebels signature recycled car tire soles and laces. Inside is a super soft organic cotton lining.
