What We’re Saying: While many brands continue to work towards a greener future, Saucony comes one step closer to achieving its subsequent goals by launching its most sustainable shoe ever. The Jazz Court RFG is exclusively made from natural and renewable materials and zero percent plastic.

"Good things take time. Born to leave a lighter footprint, Jazz Court RFG is Saucony’s new step toward the good of the planet while remaining true to itself," the brand said in an official press release. "This style took several years to come to light. While designing it, indeed, Saucony chose no compromises between its willing to innovate in the name of sustainability while preserving the distinctive cool look it stands for since ever. The result is Saucony’s most sustainable shoe ever in one of the coolest silhouettes it ever designed."

Reducing energy each step of the design process, Saucony used cotton to make the canvas upper of the Jazz Court RFG, while also taking advantage of the durability of jute and its natural plant fiber to spin considerably strong threads for the shoe. Zeroing in on other components of the silhouette, the sockliner is constructed from sheep's wool, and below, the rubber for the outsole is sourced from the milk of the hevea tree. The laces are then crafted from wood via eucalyptus tree fibers, and gardenia flowers, gallnut and mulberry leaf are used to dye the collar lining and uppers.

Currently available in green and dark grey colorways, the Jazz Court RFG comes in a more sustainable shoe box made from recycled cardboard with a label created from kraft paper with soy-based ink. Follow the link below to support Saucony's sustainability initiative and purchase the shoe today.
