Style made from inner tubes

IMG_4035-tires

After rolling for hundreds of thousands of kilometers, after being punctured and patched more than once, it ends up in the disposal bin of a tire shop, despite having transported cargo, faced bad weather conditions, felt the burning asphalt on hot days, and accompanied the lives of families at the sea, lonely people, and laborers. What an inglorious end after such hard work! Springa goes to retrieve the inner tubes right there where they are piled, helpless, forgotten and waiting to be permanently disposed of. We carefully clean, cut and flatten them and give them a new life as a pair of shoes. The shoe becomes the witness of the impression left by the rim, of the writing by the tire manufacturer, of the holes repaired with patches, and of the road traveled. And now with a new vulcanized rubber sole and edgy, bright, and aggressive colors it is ready to hit the road!
