Upcycles old tires from Haiti

The Padre Flip Flop from Brave Soles is a classic leather design for whatever the day holds in store. With comfy cushioning and extra traction on the bottom, this sturdy sandal is able to fight through sand, rain and endless summer days. Made with ethically sourced leather from the Dominican Republic, and handcrafted tire soles from upcycled inner tire tubes sourced in Haiti.

Tires are among the most common plastic polluters on earth. It’s estimated that tires account for anywhere from 10 to as much as 30 percent of overall microplastic waste in the world’s oceans. Brave Soles helps remove tires from dumps in the Dominican Republic and artfully crafts them into sustainable footwear.

All Brave Soles are made with human power, sustainable materials, and do not involve any chemical processes. And through a collaboration with United By Blue, one pound of trash will be removed from oceans and waterways for every pair sold.
