UK company Above and Below have made some trainers from old bus seat covers and they actually look quite fetching.
The sneakers have been made in collaboration with First Transport and the Transport Recycling In Partnership (TRiP) and are hi-top basketball type shoes with panels of bus seat fabric on the sides. I think they look rather good and you can’t immediately tell the fabric comes from a bus seat. Take a closer look though and I can’t help but imagine lighter burns, tinny songs played on mobile phones and graf-ed up windows.
