The shoe is the first 75% USDA-certified bio-based shoe.
Who says sustainable footwear can’t look good? Reebok has whipped up a classic silhouette that features a 100% cotton upper and a sole that is derived from corn. To create the shoe, Reebok partnered with DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products, who have created Susterra propanediol, a petroleum-free, non-toxic material that performs just like a traditional sneaker sole, but is made from field corn. The NPC UK Cotton + Corn is the first-ever 75% USDA-certified bio-based shoe and also features an insole that is made from castor bean oil and comes in 100% recyclable packaging.
The shoe is available today in limited quantities.
