As you might have guessed, running shoes contain a lot of plastic, which is made out of petroleum. Finding sustainable options hasn’t been easy enough, although for example Adidas has done sneakers made from recycled ocean waste in partnership with environmental organization Parley for the Oceans since 2015. And earlier this year, Adidas revealed a running shoe made from 100 percent recyclable materials, Future Loop. It was however only released in 200 pairs, the plan is to roll out the release more widely for spring 2021, and we can’t wait.

But there are already sustainable options on the market. One player that recently launched on the Scandinavian market is American Allbirds. The Allbirds Tree Runners’ mesh knit textile is made from responsibly grown and sustainably harvested eucalyptus pulp.

This week Veja reveals its first running shoe, the Condor. It debuts today (19 September) and is made of 53% biological-based materials According to Veja, they’ve been working on the development for four years, and it’s still just the beginning, they work to reduce the plastic further.

Check out Adidas’ Parley products here, Allbirds Tree Runners here and Veja’s the Condor here.
