As an urban footwear brand, BODO’s goal is to create timeless, sandals with a modern edge, but with ethics at their core, they aim to provide durable and practical footwear for those living in poverty stricken communities.
The concept of the BODO sandal originated in Trinidad & Tobago, where founder Peter Lochan’s uncle was determined to make a better living for himself. He created boot soles from used car tyres, selling them to oil field workers to bring longevity to their boots and proving much more durable.
Determined to keep his Uncle’s story alive, Peter has revived his innovative concept to create a sandal using used car tyres able to withstand wear like his uncle’s designs. 45,000 tonnes of car tyres are dumped each year, causing serious environmental issues. Here’s a clever sandle with a soul.
