SNEAKER RESCUE — REFRESH YOUR TREASURED TRAINERS

SNEAKER RESCUE — REFRESH YOUR TREASURED TRAINERS

We’re all trying to reduce, reuse and recycle. And while your smart shoes can be cleaned and repaired all over town, your sneakers are a different story. Too often, worn out trainers end up being thrown away, and this is what motivated 23-year-old Hagen Matuszak to start Sneaker Rescue, the repair and cleaning service that will give your favorite pair of shoes a new lease of life – no matter how beaten up they seem. Having always repaired his own sneakers, Pankow-born Hagen went pro in 2018, first operating out of his Prenzlauer Berg flat. Now you can bring your shoes directly to their Neukölln workshop, or just send the four-man team a picture of your pair and they’ll message you back with a quote. Simply send your shoes in and after around 10–14 days they’ll be posted back – repaired, cleaned and refreshed. Your feet – and the planet – will be grateful.
