Recyclable trainer

If your shoes wear out do you throw them away, have them repaired, or try to recycle them? Recycling your shoes may prove challenging. Although there are a few shoe recycling programs in existence shoes often can't be recycled because of the adhesives used in their construction. Designer Ben Chappell hopes to changes this with Think.

It is Ben Chappell's innovative thinking that has helped him designThink, a shoe prototype, which will allow consumers to recycle the shoeas well as exchange parts of it for newer or cooler ones.
