World Environment Day 2021

World Environment Day 2021: Upcycle Your Vintage Soles 

Tired of your old kicks? Not sure what to do with them? Consider upcycling your trainers to give them a second life on World Environment Day, which falls on June 5th. 


Here at Vintage Trainers, we buy previously-loved trainers and polish them up to give them a few extra miles. You get extra cash, and we eliminate waste, so they don’t end up in the landfill. 


It’s a win-win for everyone, including the environment. 



Here’s how to get started.

Consider a closet overhaul. When’s the last time you cleaned out your wardrobe and set aside the things you no longer wear? 


Bought the wrong size? Bored of the style? If you have any trainers collecting dust, we’ll upcycle them for you. 


Brands We Love - Nike, Adidas, Puma, New Balance, Reebok, etc. 



What Happens Next

We use eco-friendly cleaning products such as Pedag and Collonil to bring your tired old soles back to life. 


  • Our process involves hand cleaning each sneaker after a thorough wash. 
  • Each shoe gets a gentle spritz to keep them smelling fresh, so they’re good and ready for the next owner. 


The environment is important to us, so we only use recycled packaging to ship your vintage soles. 



Want to buy Vintage Trainers? 

Shop with confidence. We offer free UK delivery and returns so you can return the trainers if it’s not the right fit. We also ship worldwide.
