Brothers notes: Comfortable pair of good looking flip flops with quality construction.

1.5 billion tires are discarded each year yet. Yet due to their structure they take thousands of years to decompose. Indosole repurpose these indestructible tires into the soles of some of the most durable footwear around.

areas for development

Indosole have used natural rubber for their midsoles which has less environmental impact than virgin synthetic rubber (derived from petrochemicals). However natural rubber tree plantations have been linked to illegal deforestation. As part of Indosoles commitment to continual development it would be good to see them track the provenance of their natural rubber.

suppliers

Recycled tires: Tires sourced locally from stockyards looking to discard their tires. (Indonesia)
Natural rubber blend footbed: Supplier in Indonesia
ENVRO fiber straps: Supplier in Indonesia
Assembly: Supplier in Indonesia (REACH environmental standard compliant)

worker conditions

Indosole’s suppliers are all located in Indonesia which allows them to develop a close relationship with them and visit them regularly. The factory where the flip-flops are assembled is visited once a month and other suppliers at least once a year.

Indosole shared with us that the workers in the factory where their flip-flops are assembled receive health care as part of their employment. Overtime is paid at a rate of 1st hour *1.5 hourly 2nd and more *2 hourly.

Indosole’s policy is to work with reputable suppliers with strong reputations. The fact that all of their suppliers are based in the same country helps them maintain a good understanding of workers conditions and country specific challenges.

environmental impact

1.5 billion tires are discarded each year yet. Yet due to their structure they take thousands of years to decompose. Indosole soles are made with 40% recycled tire content. The brand have developed the SETT® (SOLE ENGINEERED TIRE TECHNOLOGY) process that allows the whole of an old tire to be ground into a fine powder and then reset into a shoe sole.

Indosole midsoles are made with a blend of natural rubber and EVA which helps ensure a good bond and durability. Like all petroleum based products EVA has environmental impact associated with it. In order to reduce the amount of EVA needing to be produced Indosole have developed a proprietary process for using recycled EVA offcuts gathered from the factory floor during other brands production runs.
