Plant-based shoes have begun popping up over the last several years. While there have been a number of ethically sourced shoe manufacturers, many of the name brands have not fully embraced recycled and purposely designed shoes until recently. Nevertheless, this has led to a revolution that has reshaped the way sneakers are produced, culminating with the release of the Reebok Forever Floatride GROW. These shoes are constructed from algae, eucalyptus, and castor beans.
The shoe itself has a very earthy look to it. There are no bright colors or vibrant designs, which is the case for many modern running shoes. These instead feature an almost 1970’s vibe, with an off-white/cream cloth top, and a brownish sole. These shoes take going green to an entirely different level. There are no heavy plastics or metals used in the shoe at all. So, if you’re tired of the plastic and synthetic materials that add to your carbon footprint, these new Reeboks will give you an option that fully embraces the idea of ethically manufactured footwear.
