Description: 

On the Asphalt (O.T.A) is a French brand that has developed sustainable and eco-friendly unisex sneakers.

The sole of the sneaker is made of recycled tyres, while the leather is obtained from scraps from a glove factory. The shoe is 100% produced in Europe, as O.T.A produces its shoes in a workshop in Portugal and its leather in Italy.

The O.T.A sneakers are unisex and are available in three different combinations of materials and colours.
