Iconic shoe brand, Adidas, just launched new vegan designs.
New kicks, who dis? That long-time sneaker favorite adds a couple newbies to its vegan lineup. Plant-based down to the glue, these revamps of fashion classics include the vegan Samba (with Adidas three-stripe signature down the side) and the vegan Continental (classic white with red stripe detailing). Both designs retail for $80.
These looks add to the company’s “Our Icons Go Vegan” line, first initiated in 2018 in collaboration with Stella McCartney with the creation of a leather-free version of the Stan Smith sneaker. That original Stella Stan Smith has seen an update since its debut, now sporting thick rainbow shoelaces and fun rows of stars down the sides.
Adidas is committed to transitioning toward sustainability, incorporating into their brand more products made from recycled plastic beach waste, utilizing more packaging consisting of recycled materials, and, eventually, launching a fully recyclable running shoe.
Move over all you other kicks! These ‘80s fitness favs are the new plant-based craze! Leg warmers, anyone? Big hair?
