Ride of your life
No one really admits to loving to travel by Tube, but after about a million journeys one does start to develop a weird affection for his or her chosen line. Above+Below London feeds on this affection - their recycled footwear commemorates journeys by upcycling moquettes (those are the patterns on the seats doncha know) into fabric uppers. This one shows fabric from the District Line. The leather trim has been re-purposed, and recycled rubber tyres go into the soles.
