Prooü urban DOTs: Shoe & Sneaker

€39,097

333

Choose your urban style. More than 12 models handcrafted in Barcelona. Our Unisex designs are ready to take you wherever you'd like to go today.

There are many different kinds of shoes and sneakers but on many occasions we need the combination of both. Prooü is your smart choice.  

Prooü are 2-in-1 shoes for the new urban lifestyle, combining the comfort of sneakers and the style of elegant shoes while being sustainable thanks to its recycled tire soles. 

  
    

New Prooü shoes will incorporate tire soles after being recycled following a technical process. Tire soles improve grip, especially when it rains.

We select old tires to be processed and reuse the middle of the tread. We are able to upcycle a 30% of an old tire with our soles.

Prooü urban lifestyle is commited to protecting the natural environment and defending a sustainable development.

Prooü shoes are inspired by vintage cycling and redesigned by Joan Esteve to deliver a total comfort.

Prooü shoes will be handcrafted by Orestes RIBÓ in his workshop in Barcelona, probably the last cycling shoemaker in Europe. His father was also a well-known cycling shoemaker since 1945.

Handcrafted for Champions: Ancient legends of Spanish cycling such as Emilio Rodríguez (winner of la Vuelta España in 1950), Bernardo Ruíz (1948) or Miquel Poblet (Volta Cataluña 1952 and 1960) were the first illustrious clients and also advisers to the artisan Ribó.

 Old Ribó shoemaker shape from the 60s. Higher instep for a better hold, with a touch of beige leather. Unique handmade punched leather with classic brown waxed laces. 

  
  
  

Prooü was created in 2011 by the industrial designer Joan Esteve, who develops projects with natural materials.

Together with Joan Bonmatí, he took on the challenge of designing a comfortable, functional and elegant shoe for all occasions.

Esteve and Bonmatí have known each other since they were born and consider themselves as family. They share a passion for design and bicycles and want you to be part of it.

 

This campaign is promoted by Backercamp. Since 2012, Backercamp has helped 5,000+ creators make their projects a reality, raising over $200MM through crowdfunding.

Risks and challenges

Thanks to the experience of Orestes Ribó as a master shoemaker, we can commit to the scheduled timings in Kickstarter. In case demands surpasses our forecasted capacity, we have already planned the process and steps to be able to meet it. Orestes Ribó atelier was able to handcraft at large volumes in his peak years, the 1980s.

With this new project in Kickstarter we are clearly improving our Prooü shoes by including a new recycled tire sole. We have been preparing this new project for almost a year and we have everything planned (tests, machinery, production trials, required molds...) to start recycling and producing soles if we succeed in Kickstarter thanks to your support.

We have also included a third party quality control team at the end of the process to ensure the highest quality shoes to you.

However, we know that no project comes without any risks or challenges. If this is the case, we promise to communicate with total transparency to you.
