The $98 sneaker, a true, full-grain leather trainer, took two years to create . The sole is 94.2% virgin-plastic free and even the laces and lining come from recycled plastic and polyester. The Tread Trainer is a unisex style coming in men’s and women’s sizes seven colors: Off White, Glacier, Grey, Navy, Butter, Pale Pink, and Black.
“Make the world’s most sustainable sneakers. Make them to last. Make them completely carbon neutral. And never stop pushing to make them better,” Michale Preysman, Founder & CEO of Everlane said in a press release and email. “We’re starting with a leather trainer that’s the lowest impact of its kind. Made with less waste and almost no virgin plastic—it’s also completely carbon offset. Best of all, it’s designed and constructed to last—so fewer end up in landfills.”
