New Life For Old Soles

Your sandals have a soul of their own, shaped by every wild adventure you’ve weathered together. And when they’re well-worn and ready to retire, they’ve never had a great place to go—until now.

In nature, nothing’s wasted. So with nature as our guide, we can do better with everything we make. Because 300 million shoes end up in landfills each year in the US alone, and we want that cycle to stop. Circularity means designing products that can be recycled and repurposed, so we can reuse what we have to make what we want. We’re not there yet, but that’s what we’re working towards. New from old, just like nature taught us.

Teva's vision is to create new sandals from old ones, closing the circle of production. Every pair you send in helps us get closer to our ultimate goal, and with enough research and development we’ll work to eventually close the loop.
