Reebok to launch sustainable vegan training shoes

Reebok is joining the likes of H&M, Adidas and Nike in the use of sustainable vegan materials to create footwear.

The sportswear brand has announced the creation of a vegan version of the Nano X1 training shoes, one of its most popular designs.

The new vegan shoes are bio-based with 40% of the materials being renewable and biological.

While other brands have taken to cactus leather to create fashion pieces, Reebok has opted for cotton and wood spun yarn for the upper and natural rubber for the soles.

This demonstrates the huge versatility in plant-based materials with numerous options for cruelty-free alternatives to cow-hide and unsustainable plastic.

The Nano X1 Vegan will be available in both men’s and women’s sizes from May 1st in the US, retailing at $150. 

‘Bold sustainability ambitions’

In a statement, Reebok Senior Product Manager Tal Short explained:

“We have a responsibility not just to design and create with our consumers in mind, but also planet Earth.

“Products like the Nano X1 Vegan are small, but important steps we’re taking towards our bold sustainability ambitions as a brand.”

This is not the first time that Reebok has ventured into vegan shoe options. In October 2020, the brand launched the Forever Floatride GLOW using castor bean, algae foam, and eucalyptus tree.

Moreover, buyers received a box of vegetables from solidarity farming with every purchase of the shoes. I guess vegans really do eat their veggies!
