Le Piquet wants to renew itself and also use reusable and sustainable materials for a second sole: designed and made with tire scraps from the motorsport world
WHAT DO WE DO TO SUPPORT OUR PLANET AND OUR HEALTH?
The I-LP collection features a recycled sole using racing tires. the world of motorsport every year uses millions of tons of tires, which at the end of the race we reuse to produce our sole.
Production process: We collect the tires from Italian cirsciuti, they are cut to use only the tread; subsequently it is chopped to transform it into powder, so it ends up in a mixer where, together with chemical agents, the bonds between the rubber molecules are broken to make it softer and provide comfort to the shoe. Once the process has been completed, the material goes into the oven at 185 ° C to melt the rubber and put it in the plates which we then use to obtain the soles.
