Indosole is on a mission to salvage discarded tires and give them new life as soles for their footwear. So far, Indosole has prevented over 30,000 tires from ending up in landfills and have turned those tires into over 60,000 pair of shoes.

Indosole features a toxic-free manufacturing process and does not use fuel powered machinery to make its footwear, just strong hands and minds. While based in San Francisco, CA and Bali, Indonesia the company's ethos is to take care of their people while chipping in to protect the environment's bottom line. Indosole has partnered with organizations that contribute to the planet's well being and often conduct beach clean-ups, give backs, and community based events.
