Vibram Sole Factor

Vibram’s new Sole Factor program aims to reduce waste and bring new life to your shoes.

Most times the uppers of shoes will be in perfectly good condition, but the soles will wear out and leave them destined for the trash. Do yourself and the environment a favor and breath new life into your old kicks.
