Circularity

O.T.A. uses recycled materials and leather, which we could consider as an upcycled material (given all the certifications their leather has). You can give/send back your O.T.A. to them. They will send them to their recycling plant based in Portugal. The materials are sorted, crushed, transformed into granules and reused in new outsoles, insoles, or on the top of the sneakers. And you get a 15% discount on your next purchase!

ABOUT

O.T.A is a sustainable and responsible unisex sneaker brand: the sole is unique because it is made from recycled tires that have already travelled the globe. Each sole is cut directly from the used tire; this first life on asphalt therefore makes each sneaker unique.
1 tire will be recycled each time O.T.A produces 3 pairs of sneakers.
O.T.A is both an eco-friendly approach and a timeless vision of fashion. We design minimalist and timeless silhouettes that will suit both men and women.

On The Asphalt is born from our globe trotting in search of new experiences, friendships and adventures. Each model bears the name and GPS coordinates of an unusual and unknown location. Whether near or far, in any case it is a call to road-trip and adventure, and a link between the tyre's past and its new life at people's feet.
O.T.A helps old tires to get back on the road and to make a few more miles on the asphalt.
