urbanRUNNER runTINGS 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 runTINGS features a hand-woven organic cotton upper with recycled tire edge wrap and toe cap, super soft interiors lined with organic cotton, and finished off with soleRebels signature recycled tire laces and soles.
As part of our b*knd series of vegan footwear, this shoe is made using no animal products.
