Lotto sneakers obtained from recycling tennis balls

In collaboration with an Italian startup, Lotto Sport Italia, a historic Italian sports company, has developed a sneaker with recycled materials. The sole is made of spent tennis balls and padel, recycled through an patented technology that obtains powders, rubber fragments and felt of any size from the recovered balls.. The upper is made of a material obtained by processing organic apple waste produced by the food industry. The laces are made of recycled polyester, and the insole is made of recycled polyurethane foam, obtained by recovering waste from other insoles.
