Reebok kicks off its sustainable “Cotton + Corn” initiative with a completely recyclable NPC UK silhouette.

Sporting an upper made entirely of woven cotton, the shoe replaces ordinary petroleum-based rubber outsoles with a field corn-derived alternative, created in partnership with DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products. The resulting 100% USDA-certified bio-based textile was dubbed Susterra Propanediol and yields a comparably sturdy sole crafted entirely from sustainable processes. A castor bean oil-derived insole ensures that the sneaker is 100% green, a motif that carries over to its recycled material packaging.

Shop the limited edition silhouette on Reebok’s site and learn more about the “Cotton + Corn” initiative below. Similarly, Maharishi also is going the way of sustainability with its latest loungewear capsule made of cotton and hemp.
