    Sportswear giant Adidas has committed to growing its plant-based range and to increase the use of sustainable materials across its entire product portfolio to meet its sustainability goals for 2021. In addition to making 60 per cent of all its products from recycled materials, the company has revealed a plant-based leather, recycled cotton and a climate-friendly sneaker, made from mycelium, the thin, root-like structures of mushrooms, according to Live Kindly.

  2. Nike Gives Air Jordan 11s A High-Tech Self-Lacing Makeover

    Nike Gives Air Jordan 11s A High-Tech Self-Lacing Makeover Nike has taken a decidedly high-tech route to honour one it’s most revered classics, styling Jordan’s favourite pair with a futuristic update.

  3. Nike Unveils Their First Hands-Free Shoe

    The world’s most popular supplier of men’s branded shoes unveiled an innovative new design that allows people to take their shoes on and off without having to reach down. The new shoes, known as the Nike GO FlyEase use a bi-stable hinge which allows the heel of the shoe to click upwards, making them easier to put on and take off without compromising the stability and structure of the shoe. Designed with accessibility in mind, the initial design came from how people instinctively kick off their sneakers when they get indoors, with disabled athletes, women in the last trimester of pregnancy and parents with their hands full being mentioned by Nike as people they had in mind for the new trainer. The design, featuring a slipper style front locked to a more Jordan-esque heel and surrounded by a typical Nike mesh, is set to be available in three different colour patterns. Initially made available via invite, Nike intends to release the shoes more widely later in the year.
