In-house shoe repair service
We already offer a shoe repair service to our customers, as pairs can be repaired, instead of being thrown away, by handing them over to local external partner shoemakers. A good way to increase the life of a product and reduce our waste!
In the future we want to go one step further and integrate an internal shoe repair service into our network, in order to centralise the service, be faster and cover our entire network.
To make shoes more durable over time and reduce their carbon footprint, the second-hand market seems to us to be an area to be studied closely: reusing a product increases its lifespan by fighting against overproduction and overconsumption. We still need to find the right logistics and think about the best service to offer our customers, without forgetting that each foot is unique and that the purchase of a second-hand pair will depend on its level of wear (an essential criterion, particularly for children).
To complete the circle, we must finally look at the life cycle and recycling of a pair of shoes. Recycling a shoe is a real challenge, as it is made up of 40 different materials on average!
We are convinced that one day we will be able to offer the best solution to recycle your favourite old pair of shoes from A to Z!
