Reebok has started selling the unisex shoes, described as being ‘chalk’ coloured.
The sole is made from corn, the insole from castor bean oil, and the upper from cotton.
Most trainers are made from oil-based rubber and synthetic materials including ‘foam’ from vinyl acetate.
Of course sustainable trainers are already available from smaller brand names, such as Veja.
