From the ground up

Fascinated by adidas’ push into sustainability with its latest shoe creations, we take another more detailed look at the adidas Futurecraft Biodegradable Ultra Boost sneaker, which was originally presented a few days ago. Featuring uppers made from 100% biodegradable material, the adidas Futurecraft Biofabric trainers are constructed from Biosteel fibres, which replicate natural silk. The fibres are made by German biotechnology company AMSilk, are completely biodegradable and are also 15% lighter than other conventional synthetic fibres. Shortly after having reported that it would be producing up to 1’000’000 pairs of its Parley Uncaged Ultra Boost, this is another step into the production of fully sustainable sneakers.
