Sneakers that respect the environment

For several years, brands have been looking for and applying more responsible alternatives in view of the environmental issues. The sneakers respectful of the planet is today an offer as rich as unexpected. Today, the production of sneakers sneakers is based on strong commitments to reduce social, economic and environmental impacts. Goodbye fossil fuels and dyes and say hello to organic materials, vegetable (apple, mushroom, cactus leather) or recycled. For the moment, the "Organic" sneakers are only half of it in fact. However, these brands are pushing their research towards ever more environmentally friendly alternatives. Where most brands choose to supply themselves in textile grown with GMOs, these brands prefer 100% natural cotton.

The same goes for rubberwhich is no longer synthetic and petroleum-based. The rubber used in the manufacture of ecological sneakers comes from therubber tree harvested in the Amazon forest. Another alternative to GMO textiles, hemp. Treated in a very specific way, this material allows towaterproofing waterproofing the sneakers. Some others have invested in the manufacture of sneakers made entirely from recycled products. The base material can be 100% recycled plastic or recycled textiles (like cotton). The plastic bottles that cover the seas find a new use, a second life. These manufacturers of eco-responsible sneakers work for a better use of the resources of our planet. Also, they help to answer a demand of the customers more and more strong.

The race for innovation among sneaker brands

Sports equipment manufacturers, even those recently implicated in the Uighur forced labor scandal in China, are trying to change their production habits Nike has put an interactive map on its website that references all its suppliers since 2005. To offer sneakers that are increasingly eco-responsible, in September 2019, the brand is multiplying innovations with the launch of Move to Zero zero carbon emissions and zero waste. By 2025, the company intends to equip all of its sites with renewable energy, and lower its greenhouse gas emissions by 30%. In addition, promoting the Reuse-a-shoe and Nike Grind programs, with the goal of reviving old products in the form of new designs. In February 2020, the brand produces an amazing sneaker named Space Hippie made of the textile waste that covers the floor of its factories but also the residues of the soles of its shoes Vapormax 4%. Same principle for the VaporMax Air Flyknit and flyknit mesh made from recycled plastic bottles.

Jordan and Converse, two brands belonging to Nike, are also part of the Move to Zero approach. At Jordan, this commitment takes shape under the line Craterline, which includes recycled polyester and nylon as well as a sole from the Nike Grind program. On the Converse side, the same code name and the same editorial line with a reinvented version of its iconic model, the Chuck Taylor All-Star.

At Adidassince 2015, the sneakers are produced from ocean waste in association with the organization that protects the seabed, Parley for the Ocean. More recently, the German brand has developed an eco-friendly sneaker called Futurecraft Loopwhich is fully recyclable and will be available for sale in 2021. To design this innovation, Adidas chose to avoid polluting materials, notably by renouncing glue and opting for thermoplastic polyurethane, a plastic considered sustainable.
