Empowering you to make
your sneakers last for years
12 billion pairs of sneakers are produced every year.
One shoe often consists of over 65 different components, mainly plastics. Because of the complexity of their manufacture, sneakers are difficult to recycle.
Most of them are doomed for landfills where some materials can take hundreds of years to decompose.
Even if more and more brands are innovating by developing Earth-friendlier models, extending the sneakers' lifespan remains the best way to reduce the ever growing environmental footprint of the industry.
However, many different materials make up sneakers and caring for them properly is laborious, which leads us to replace them sooner than we should.
So, how can we take good care of our sneakers easily?
How can we enjoy prolonging their life?
From this reflection, Bascket was born with a mission:
Inspiring and empowering people to make their sneakers last longer, by creating thoughtfully designed and easy-to-use products, and sharing a know-how built through the reconditioning of several thousand shoes.
