The future is circular. Together we can make great strides.

We believe in a future without waste. A future in which resources and raw materials are continuously recycled and reused. A circular future, to be precise. Together, we will bring this future closer. And we’ll start at your feet...

Choose circular shoes now

Over the past few years, both EMMA Safety Footwear and Allshoes Safety Footwear have been investing in the development of increasingly far-reaching circular solutions.

Allshoes Safety Footwear has been integrating more and more circular principles and EMMA introduced its first fully circular safety shoes in 2018.

By investing in circular work and safety shoes, you are choosing shoes that are designed to be completely taken apart after use. These shoes allow full, 100% circularity.

Circularity is important, even in our rugged world. And we try to abide by this principle wherever possible. Not just for industrial activities, but also in road construction, for instance.
How wonderful that we can work together with our supply partners to create material chains. A top-rate initiative!

By wearing circular safety shoes, we prevent raw materials from being exhausted and we help eliminate waste from the world

After taking the used work and safety shoes, they are completely disassembled, sorted by material, ground if necessary and then further sorted. We make a distinction between circular and non-circular safety shoes. After all, we know in advance about circular products what we will do with the recovered components and raw materials after use. Apply again in shoes or in other products. With non-circular shoes, we do not know that, we try to find an application afterwards, but we will also burn a part (although with energy recovery).
