‘A more sustainable world’

Announcing the news on Instagram, Adidas wrote: “In our effort to support our sustainability mission to end plastic waste, we’ve partnered with sean_wotherspoon for SuperEarth.

“Committing together to a more sustainable world, one shoe at a time”

Vegan Super Earth

The Superstar created as an effort to end plastic waste, is also entirely free of animal-derived materials.

The shoe’s upper is a white, vegan leather with baby blue accents on the lacestays with a textured and perforated tongue that features Wotherspoon’s signature across a “Super Earth” logo. A natural cork insole and recycled rubber enhance the shoe’s comfort and efforts at a low carbon footprint.

However, the shoe’s most eye-catching feature is its embroidery of flowers and adidas’ Trefoil logo throughout the upper with embroidered threads hanging along the side.

‘Continuous innovation’

Staying true to its commitment to sustainability, a message printed on the tag on the inside of the tongue reads: “The truth is that this shoe alone will not save the planet. However, we challenged our creation process to find more sustainable solutions. Consider this a commitment for continuous innovation in the field of sustainability.”

The shoe, which will launch on August 29, will be available on Adidas’ site and select retailers.
