Sneaker giants around the globe happen to be making plans to get more sustainable, and Reebok has became a member of the gang! Their eco-friendly plant based running shoes made out of Cotton Corn collection required us over by storm, which time they’re back with ‘The Forever Floatride GROW’, a sustainable and new version from the popular Forever Floatride Energy athletic shoes. Produced directly from plant-based materials, the Floatride GROW is Reebok’s latest initiative to abandon using oil-based plastics.
Castor beans, eucalyptus, Blossom algae, and natural rubber were the types of materials of preference. Sustainably grown castor beans were chosen to produce a very cushioned and responsive midsole, consequently, maintaining our prime performance and light-weight cushioning standard that of Reebok’s plant based running shoes performance running footwear promise. A eucalyptus midsole continues to be introduced, it’s biodegradability and sustainable sourcing guaranteed. A Blossom algae foam sock liner was put into this mixture, harvested from invasive growth areas. The algae are naturally odor-resistant, so goodbye smelly athletic shoes! Oil-based rubber was dumped for any natural rubber outsole sustainably sourced from real rubber trees.
“The earth is really a runner’s arena, and there exists a responsibility to assist detox the planet for that athletes that run inside it,” stated Matt O’Toole, Reebok Brand President. “Our Cotton Corn collection was the initial step for making footwear from stuff that grow. Now, we’ve taken an award-winning plant based running shoes and footwear, the Forever Floatride Energy, and reinvented it using natural materials to produce what we should feel is easily the most sustainable performance running footwear available on the market.”
