Reebok’s New Sustainable Running Shoe Is Almost Entirely Plant-Based

Reebok’s New Sustainable Running Shoe Is Almost Entirely Plant-Based

Reebok’s new running shoe is something any environmentally friendly athlete can appreciate: It’s made almost entirely from plants.

The Forever Floatride GROW is the brand’s latest effort to reduce their use of petroleum-based materials in their products, and its sets to launch in fall 2020. Following their Cotton+Corn lifestyle collection, this new running shoe is an updated version of their award-winning Forever Floatride Energy, and the brand state that runners are unlikely to notice a difference when it comes to performance.

Perhaps the most notable advancement is the midsole, which is built from sustainably grown castor beans. The brand states that it’s highly cushioned and responsive, and it maintains all of the lightweight cushioning and high performance of the original Forever Floatride Energy.

The sockliner is made from BLOOM algae foam, which is harvested from naturally invasive areas and has natural anti-odor properties. The upper is built from biodegradable, sustainably sourced eucalyptus trees, and it upholds breathability as well as durability. Lastly, the natural rubber for the outsole is sustainably sourced from real rubber trees.
