For Robert Taylor and Caroline Read of Above + Below London, the seats on London’s Tube trains and buses offer more than a means of conveyance. They’re also an incredible source of vintage textiles, which the a U.K.-based design company salvages for its eco-friendly shoe range. The resulting collection of striking high-tops is reminiscent of the legendary classic Chuck Taylors, but with a clever retro-modern twist that the foggy town can call its own.

NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND

Made using reclaimed upholstery uppers, recycled leather trim, and recycled tire soles, the limited-edition kicks showcase distinct patterns from London subway and bus lines, from Piccadilly to Victoria. Not only are the shoes a step in the right direction toward a greener planet, but they’re also a slice of London history, making them just the ticket for traversing above, below, or anywhere in between.
