upcycling climbing ropes
Rope_ky are shoes made entirely from a single piece of rope, which has already been discarded by climbers for safety reasons. They are meant to be easily produced by yourself, to your fit. Within workshops or team building events in a climbing centre for instance. Lightweight sole, neatly attached in four spots. The shoe is compact, well flexible, with an increased area at the heel / toe thanks to the rope ending in loops. Clearly distinguishable on the part and with potential in developing countries. Made with a pneumatic stapler, but I also work on a sewn variant.
