These days, lots of designers are reprising their older, iconic looks to speak to the many concerns that occupy us today. And adidas is no exception. With its new adidas Originals Clean Classics Collection you’ll find the quintessential silhouettes that put the sneakers on the map. What you’ll also find are styles that include uppers made from 70% recycled materials, soles constructed from 90% natural rubber, recycled cork sock liners, and laces made out of paper — yes, paper! Their shoe boxes are even made from leftover box material – how’s that for looking after Mother Earth?
The collection includes the Superstar, Stan Smith, Continental 80, Supercourt, and Top Ten sneaker models. The Stan Smith, Continental 80, and Superstar are even available in vegan options. Some of the shoes feature sayings and slogans on the rear heel, while others, like the Superstar, celebrate simplicity with the classic white and the three white adidas stripes.
