There are literally islands of plastic floating around the ocean so when we found out we could make these shorts out of recycled plastic bottles we jumped at the chance!
They're also beautifully lightweight, fit a little shorter for that 'Jordan Tyler Lea look' and are a nod to a beverage synonymous with live music that we can't really talk about. Choose your normal size if you want the shorter shorts look or size up for a more oversized fit.
Jordan is 5'10" wearing size medium.
Black shorts with red stripe detail.
Embroidered text logo.
Organic cotton & recycled polyester (RPET) blend.

When it comes to our product design, Parkour may be our primary focus, but many other factors influence our creative direction. In the case of Sole Destroyer, a huge inspiration was music and more specifically, live music. It was during live shows that many of Sole Destroyers products and marketing ideas were conceptualised.
While we wanted this collection to sit alongside other Parkour brands and of course, mainstream streetwear, we also wanted these items to not feel out of place worn by musicians on stage or the fans in a crowd.
Bold prints and large graphics were a must; however, they had to be heavily distressed and paired with washed fabrics. We wanted to create items that looked like they had lived. Complemented by a range of headwear, accessories & jewellery, Sole Destroyer is by far, our best and most progressive collection to date.
