What’s the best thing that's happened to you today?

S: I spoke to my best friend who lives in Germany.

D: Olivia Harrison asked me to make a gift for Paul McCartney's birthday.

Which one item of clothing do you value the most?

S: I would have to say my wedding dress as it was my mums. She wore it in 1976 when my parents got married in Finland. She keeps everything in pristine condition and luckily has good taste. It’s pretty special to see photos of us both wearing it.

D: The only item I have a personal connection to is an oversized blue knitted cardigan which my friend and I made when we had a knitwear label. I never wear it because I’m too scared, I’ll ruin it. Correction, I know I’ll ruin it.

There is an Afterlife.
What becomes of your sneakers?
Our goal

Our goal is to offer total sustainability throughout the product lifecycle, from design and production through end-of-life. By sourcing renewable materials and recycling them, we can target an environmental impact of zero or better.

Recycling program

Afterlife is the Roscomar recycling program. We offer free end-of-life returns which means that we can take your old Roscomars and reincarnate them into something new so they don't end up in landfill or incineration, which is the fate of 85%+ of shoes globally.

Global leaders

We work with global leaders in textile and footwear recycling. We disassemble the components of each sneaker and recycle that which can be recycled, such as rubber. Natural materials such as leather, suede and cotton, are composted or reprocessed to make new materials.
