EXO is a pair of sneakers made entirely with recycled plastic and completely recyclable itself. The name comes from “éxo”, greek word that means “out” and used also in “exoskeleton”, which reminds of the outer part of this footwear. The sneakers are made by two separable parts which allow to compose the combination of colours you prefer. This also helps to recycle them separately to obtain the same pure material.
The inner “sock” is in fabric made with recycled PET.
Collected all the bottles, they are dried and drawn. The wires are then woven to obtain a cloth. The outer piece is made in silicone, a soft plastic. Silicone is durable and 100% recyclable.
