What’s the best thing that's happened to you today?

Waking up next to my son and girlfriend.

Do you collect anything?

I collect a lot of things, mainly books. I like to keep up with IDEA, Donlon, Dashwood, November books, to mention a few. I am usually trying to score first and signed editions. I wish I started earlier, but I guess it's better late than never; even before having a kid, I wanted to create a book collection that I could pass down. Most of my collection is fashion orientated, but I'm adding more and more art and culture titles. My latest acquisition is a signed copy of Jamie Hawkesworth's the British Isles, and before that, I purchased Stone Island Storia. Additional titles that I've acquired are a few editions of Rin Tanaka's My Freedamn, and those are so good!

There is an Afterlife.
What becomes of your sneakers?
Our goal

Our goal is to offer total sustainability throughout the product lifecycle, from design and production through end-of-life. By sourcing renewable materials and recycling them, we can target an environmental impact of zero or better.

Recycling program

Afterlife is the Roscomar recycling program. We offer free end-of-life returns which means that we can take your old Roscomars and reincarnate them into something new so they don't end up in landfill or incineration, which is the fate of 85%+ of shoes globally.

Global leaders

We work with global leaders in textile and footwear recycling. We disassemble the components of each sneaker and recycle that which can be recycled, such as rubber. Natural materials such as leather, suede and cotton, are composted or reprocessed to make new materials.
