It does not exist a 100% reciclable shoe, but Art uses 100% recycleble soles, insoles, inlinings and carton boxes.
Art have a wide range of insoles of its own, according to the technical characteristics of the shoe: microfiber with carbón active or natural leather (calfskin or pig hyde).
Not necessarily; every type has different characteristics making them suitable for different tasks. For example Art microfiber insoles are more absorbent, have thermoregulation advantages and are antibacterial.

Anatomic insoles, stonetheraphy insoles and model 1 from removable insoles can be washed by hand. Model 2 (removable insoles) can be washed in washing machine. Model 3, made of natural leather, cannot be washed.
