adidas Made These Sustainable Stan Smiths Out Of Vegan Mushroom Leather

As more and more sneaker giants begin to experiment with eco-friendly alternatives to traditional shoe constructions, it’s become abundantly clear that sustainability is no longer just a fad or a marketing gimmick — it’s the way forward. For despite having dropped a recycled version of its Stan Smith just a little over a month ago, adidas is already back and ready to up the ante.

The latest version of the Three Stripes’ iconic court sneaker takes the form of the ‘Stan Smith Mylo.’ Created in collaboration with leading biotech company Bolt Threads, it features an outer upper, perforated 3 stripes, and heel tab all made from Mylo, a mushroom-based material (mycelium) that looks and feels exactly like leather. In practice, mycelium is something of a game-changer in the world of renewable fashion, being both incredibly fast-growing as well as highly space-efficient. And when you consider that these Stan Smiths also boast a natural rubber midsole, they offer a promising first look at what’s to come. Pricing or release details have yet to be announced, but you can learn more at the link below.
