Designed by Seth Maxwell at the New Balance Global Design Center, the sustainable shoes utilize scraps left over from other New Balance products to create a recycled shoe that comes in three colorways: pink, yellow, and green. Because each pair features a blend of reclaimed materials, each sneaker is unique.
The uppers of the sustainable shoes are created using surplus mesh, synthetic, and upper webbing from the factory, according to a press release from New Balance. Maxwell also used leftover midsole color pellets to fill in the midsole, and surplus lining for the sock-like neck of the shoe. Plus, the outsole contains 30 percent recycled material.
The limited-edition sneakers are flying off the shelves already. So if you’ve got your eye on a pair, run don’t walk.
