#29 - Weekly News Bonus- Salomon INDEX.01 with Laurent Coudurier

Episode #29 of the Running Industry Podcast we bring you a Weekly News  Bonus episode, as we chat to Laurent Coudurier the R&D Project Manager at Salomon and crucially part of the team who worked on the development of the ground-breaking INDEX.01 shoe, which was released last week to coincide with Earth Day.


The INDEX.01 first made a splash as a concept shoe in 2019, and the concept is simple—you buy the shoes, register them on Salomon’s website and, when you’re finished with them, get a shipping label to send the shoes off to be recycled and so the INDEX.01 claims to be the first full-circle running shoe to hit the market.
