Being a sneakerhead isn’t cheap and it’s not good for the environment, either. In fact, trainers account for 1.4-percent of the global greenhouse gas emissions, which is a pretty intense considering that air travel is responsible for 2.5 percent. So if owning sustainable shoes is as important to you as owning a stylish, comfortable sneaker, you need to hear about Lane Eight’s Trainer AD 1 for Men and Women.

Lane Eight’s on a mission to build the world’s best workout shoes. But they’re not just talking performance in the gym or on the road. They’re talking about designing and developing shoes that Planet Earth can feel good about.

Part of what sets the Trainer AD 1 for Men and Women apart from other shoes is its BLOOM™ Algae Foam Midsole. BLOOM harvests toxic algae blooms from lakes around the world. Then the algae is dried and processed, and eventually becomes part of their ultra cushy midsoles. All told, each pair of BLOOM midsoles returns 31.5 liters of freshwater back to the environment and removes 64-cubic meters of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. In addition to its Algae Foam Midsole, Lane Eight’s stretchy, supportive knit uppers are made with 11 bottles worth of recycled single-use plastic yarn. Plus, its vegan microfiber overlay is lighter than suede, and just as durable too, resulting in a sustainable shoe that fits and feels as good as it looks.

Lane Eight’s 30-Day Free Return
