Salomon has developed a running shoe that is 365º sustainable.

This shoe has been designed to be 100% recycled easily. The shoe's upper is made of recycled polyester, which can be recycled again into new fabrics. The sole is made of recycled foam, and has been designed so it can be sent to the factory that makes Salomon’s ski boots, allowing the sole of each shoe to be used for a new ski boot shell.
