Evolving
to advance

At M. Moustache, we have nothing against shoe collectors and shoe lovers. Quite the opposite, we’re all for them!

We also believe it’s our role to regularly release new designs.
And yet, we think that it’s imperative that a solution be found to reduce the impact of shoe production on the environment.

With Enco[re], we’ll not only continue to design to bring you joy, we’ll also manage products at the end of their lives and ensure that they are purposely repurposed. By doing so, we’ll create a more circular economy that will benefit the entire industry.

Recycling
to decrease waste

Because a shoe is made up of many elements and materials, each of which must be treated separately, recycling a shoe is actually much more complex than you might think.
Our partner, I:Co, has developed an innovative technology that allows all of the different materials of a shoe to be recycled.

This 100% mechanical and chemical-free process enables the dozens of elements that make up a shoe (leather, rubber, foam, metal, canvas ...) to be separated. The materials are then sorted and recycled before being put back into production.

« A world-first technological innovation that finally makes it possible to recycle shoes on a large scale. »

FAQs

FAQs

So once more, what’s Enco[re]?

Enco[re] is a recycling program that gives your old shoes a second life. But above all else, Enco[re] is a solution: it allows us to continue to release new products while reducing their impact on the environment, all thanks to the commitment of our customers.

What’s the difference between this and the recycling solutions of other brands?

What’s truly new about Enco[re] is that it works with shoes. As shoes are made up of many different elements (leather, cotton, metal, rubber ...), they cannot be recycled in the same way. In fact, it’s actually much more complex to recycle shoes than say, a t-shirt made of 100% cotton. However, our partner, I:Co, has developed a unique solution that enables all the elements of a shoe to be separated and recycled.

How exactly does it work?

It all happens at our shops: you drop in, and we collect, your old shoes, whether they’re shoes by M. Moustache or another brand. You’ll then receive a 10% discount on your next purchase, which you can use in store or at our e-shop. Simple and straightforward.

How long do I have to drop off my shoes?

There’s no time limit. Enco[re] is a long-term commitment, which we intend to implement in each of our current and future shops.

What if I don’t live in Paris?

Sending your shoes by post is not really a simple or even a very environmentally-friendly solution. That’s why we decided not to offer this option for the moment. Presently, there are two collection points at our shops in Paris, but even as we speak, we’re working on setting up other Enco[re] points throughout France.

Can I drop off any shoes, even if they are not by M. Moustache ?

Yes! We accept any and all old shoes and treat all old shoes equally.

What happens to my shoes after I drop them off?

Every month, we send all of the old shoes we’ve collected at our Paris shops to I:Co, our partner, based in Germany. I:Co then mechanically separates (without any chemicals) all of the components of the shoes so that they can be recycled.

Can I apply my discount code to my next purchase ?

Yes, each discount code is valid for 30 days from the date of issue and can be used either in-store or online at our e-shop.

Can the percentage of the discount be multiplied by the number of pairs I drop off?

Unfortunately, not ... If you brought us your entire collection, there’s too great a risk that we’d end up owing you money!

So, when will you release a model made from the recycled materials of my old shoes?

Not long now! We’re aiming to launch our capsule collection “ENCORE” of designs made from recycled materials in the spring of 2020.
