Reebok is the latest company to offer a plant-based shoe, with the launch of the first style of its highly anticipated Cotton + Corn collection this Wednesday. Featuring a 100 percent cotton upper and corn-based soles, the unisex sneakers come in a recycled package.
On its website, Reebok says the Cotton + Corn sneakers are certified to be 75 percent bio-based by the United States Department of Agriculture -- the first shoes to ever earn such a certification.
Reebok’s Cotton + Corn retails for 95 US dollars on Reebok’s American website and limited retailers.
