The Puma 'Re-Cut Project' Shoes are Manufactured from Recycled Denim

Puma’s Re-Cut Project shoes are a line of kicks that are manufactured using recycled denim. These shoes are a paragon of style, eco-friendliness and social good -- all profits collected from their sale will be donated to the Be Tho Orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

The Re-Cut Project shoes are produced using leftover off-cuts from denim test panels, which are converted into denim uppers to produce a low-cut, lightweight casual shoe. The shoes are part of Puma's push to increasingly embrace a 'closed-loop' model where materials are constantly re-used rather than wasted.

"Puma is dedicated to creating products that work towards the closed-loop model and have a lower impact on the environment," said PUMA Re-Cut Project Program Manager Justin DeKoszmovszky.

The Puma Re-Cut Project shoes are available on Puma's website and at select retailers.
