In late 2019, we unveiled the concept for a shoe that could be disassembled and recycled at the end of its life. Now, after years of research and development, the recyclable Index.01 running shoe is a reality. 📐THE DESIGN Index.01 is made completely from: – The bottom unit is made from a Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and foam called INFINIRIDE -The upper is made of recycled polyester. – Designed for road running, the INFINIRIDE foam delivers shock absorption and the rockered sole helps propel the runner forward with a quick transition, so you spend less time on the ground. ♻️RECYCLING THE INDEX.01 – The recycling process is a collective effort with our community. – Print a free shipping label with the designed shipping address on, then send the shoes to the closest collection centers in Europe, North America, and Asia/Pacific regions. – Materials will be washed, separated and ground down separately into tiny pellets. Then recycled. – The materials recycled in Europe will be combined with virgin TPU to make Salomon alpine ski boots for the 2022 winter range. – The polyester upper recycled in the other regions will be turned into yarn used to weave fabric and create other products. 📦SHIPPING THE INDEX.01 – There will be no stuffing paper used inside the shoes and no extra hangtags. In fact, starting with the Spring 2021 season, all Salomon footwear uses FSC certified packaging. 🗓The Index.01 will be released in the Spring of 2021! Follow the link in our bio to register and get notified when the Index.01 will be available for purchase. 🙌 #Salomon #TimeToPlay #playminded #running #runningshoe #runninggear #skiboots #skiing #recycle #circulareconomy #recycledfashion #recycledmaterials
