Reebok’s New Sustainable Sneakers Are 100% Vegan


November 1, 2018 Style : Shoes By

If you’ve already transitioned your diet to plant-based, but want to go one step further, there’s always vegan. Just as one would do with a diet plan, Reebok has done with its sneakers. The brand is stepping up to the animal-friendly plate with its Cotton + Corn sneakers. There’s a ton of waste produced from the sneaker and outdoor industry, and Reebok is doing what it can to adjust that imbalance. The first pair of shoes launched back in August, but this second iteration transitions to an all-vegan sneaker.

The upper is 100 percent cotton with a biobased sole from corn (hence the name). It’s a 75 percent USDA certified bio-based shoe thanks to its use of castor bean oil, undyed materials and recycled packaging. Each shoe uses an animal-friendly process during creation, so you can feel great about your purchase in addition to having a cushy sole underfoot. Pick up a pair of the NPC UK Cotton + Corn for $95 today.
