Reducing waste is a priority for us, and the women's Test Run Project 3.0 is the ultimate use of our leftovers. Surplus materials are what remains after we've made all of our production runs and the season is over. We've taken some of the waste and turned it into a limited-edition Test Run project, preventing disposal of some of this stock. Because we are using extra supplies, no two pairs of TRP3 shoes are identical. Where surplus materials were not available, we made every effort to use at least partial recycled or reused content.
Each TRP3 midsole uses various leftover colors of our raw Fresh Foam material from our ongoing Fresh Foam production runs
Repurposed surplus materials make up the upper mesh, upper synthetic, upper webbing, hook and loop, and all stitching threads
Sockliners are repurposed from another model's leftover pieces, preventing disposal
Vibram® Ecostep is used for the outsole, which contains a minimum of 30% reclaimed scrap rubber from Vibram's® own sole production
