Adidas tries to reduce the ecological footprint of their products in two ways. On the one hand, there’s the choice of material, and on the other there’s the way the items are manufactured. Adidas has already launched several sustainability initiatives.
The result of this partnership – the Adidas Futurecraft Biofabric – is a sneaker made from Biosteel® fibers. Biosteel® is a replication of natural silk that does not need high production temperatures, thus drastically cutting fossil fuel burning. And as if that was not enough, Biosteel® is biodegradable. If you put your Adidas Futurecraft Biofabric in water and add a certain enzyme, it dissolves completely – well, almost completely: the sole will be the sole (pun intended!) survivor of this natural process.
