Reebok Paves the Way with Plant-Based Running Shoe, Forever Floatride GROW
Made of castor bean, eucalyptus and algae.
Reebok has announced an upcoming plant-based performance shoe, the Forever Floatride GROW, a major innovation in sustainable footwear. Following the brand’s vegan Cotton + Corn collection, the forthcoming shoe updates Reebok’s Forever Floatride Energy by replacing traditional materials with natural alternatives including castor bean oil, eucalyptus tree, algae and natural rubber.
Constructed of a white knit upper, the sneaker is rendered in a neutral color palette. Reebok’s signature stripes in beige adorn the lateral, while a fabric Reebok-branded tab in mustard brown is attached to the tongue. Floatride branding appears at the medial heel. A white midsole, gum rubber outsole and beige laces finish off the shoe.
Reebok’s Forever Floatride GROW is set to launch Fall 2020. Stay tuned as more information emerges.
