Post petroleum shoe has come into the market

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2019-10-01 15:20:00 –

Veja, a French company known for its sustainable shoes and accessories, has developed a running shoe that’s 53% bio-sourced. This is Veja’s first foray into the running market and the shoe, called the ‘Condor,’ is being referred to as the “post-petrol” running shoe.

According to the company, 99% of the materials in conventional running shoes is plastic – primarily a petroleum-based polymer. This shoe, Veja said, vastly improves on that. Made in Brazil, the Condor’s composition includes an upper made of 100% recycled plastic bottles, a heel support insert from 100% ricinus oil, and an outsole, insole, and midsole that are largely composed of wild rubber from Amazonia, organic cotton, rice waste, banana oil, and sugar cane.

Veja said they spent four years developing the shoe, which takes its shape from the bone structure of the South American bird for which it’s named.
