Cyclon is a running shoe made from beans that cannot be bought but are rented via a subscription. At the end of its life (~600km), the user requests a new pair and returns the old to be recycled. It is made from recyclable biomaterial.
For enhancing recyclability, the shoe is un-dyed, and a single cut is made to get the upper knitted material to avoid waste in manufacturing.
