Reebok’s new shoe will be modelled after its familiar ‘Classics’ sneaker.
But the environmentally friendly footwear will have an upper section made of sustainable organic cotton – while the sole will be derived from industrial grown corn.
Unlike its edible counterpart industrial grown is considered a grain and is harvested when it’s older and tougher – Reebok says.
Even the new sneaker’s eyelets will be stitched rather than made of metal or plastic like some other shoes.
