After working on the concept of a recyclable shoe for the last three years, Salomon brand first unveiled the concept of the Index.01 shoe back in 2019. Now, we get our first look at the sneakers in a sleek all-white colorway.
The upper of the Index.01 is made from recycled polyester, while the sole unit is crafted from a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and foam known as INFINIRIDE. As the sneaker is designed specifically for road running, the INFINIRIDE foam enhances shock absorption, and the rockered sole propels the wearer forward.
Once a pair of Index.01 come to the end of its life cycle, the shoes can be returned to Salomon free of charge, disassembled and recycled. The whole process and concept matches Salomon’s passion for the outdoors and commitment to the environment.
The brand will be releasing the recyclable Index.01 in the spring of 2021. You can learn more about the sneaker by pressing play below and then visiting Salomon.com
