Solum is the future of sustainability in footwear.

Help us reimagine the power of the trails we blaze.

The world’s first regenerative outsole

Solum’s innovative Bio-Tread™ material is made from recycled plant by-products. As the outsole wears down over time, it redeposits these positive nutrients into the ground for plants to absorb; regenerating the surrounding ecosystem and beginning the cycle again.

Solum is helping empower you to play a central role in this cycle, connecting your everyday movements to the health of the ecosystem.

As we move around, the bottom of our shoes wear down leaving an invisible trail of toxic micro-fragments that pollute our soil and waterways.

25 billion

The number of pairs of shoes the footwear industry produces in an average year, the bulk of which are manufactured using toxic synthetics and chemicals.

300 million

The number of pairs of shoes which end up in landfills in an average year.

Solum has a goal of reaching 40 million pairs by 2025. With each shoe releasing 50 grams of positive nutrients throughout its lifetime, this will equate to 2 billion grams of nutrients redeposited into the ecosystem.

Our products don’t sacrifice strength or performance.

Using the principles of biomimicry, the same biological nutrients that give trees and plants their strength and resiliency are also what reinforces Solum’s Bio-Tread™ material.

The Solum Team

Our team set out to explore the interconnection between footwear, consumer, and environment by rethinking the design and function of the outsole.

With a combined background in footwear development, material engineering and environmental science, we created an outsole material that’s mere existence benefits the ecosystem.
