Earlier this Summer, adidas introduced the “Clean Classics” line, which rebuilt some of their quintessential silhouettes entirely from vegan materials. Now, the brand is adding more sustainable options with the new “This Shoe Will Not Save the Planet” pack.
adidas is going all-in on delivering their massive archive of classic silhouettes in vegan-friendly options. The initiative kicked off late in 2019, with the release of Stella McCartney’s take on the leather Stan Smith, made entirely with vegan materials. Since then, the Three Stripes have offered up several colorways of both the Stan Smith and Superstar in entirely vegan-friendly constructions. Now, as we head deeper into 2020, adidas Originals is adding even more silhouettes to the mix with next month’s “This Shoe Will Not Save the Planet” Collection. In addition to the two previous models, the Three Stripes has added the Continental 80 and Supercourt silhouettes to the vegan lineup. The new collection, which acknowledges that “sustainability” in the sneaker industry is nowhere near a perfect solution, displays this sentiment boldly across the heel of each shoe, with the phrase “This Shoe Alone Will Not Save the Planet”. Each model features a signature accent color in which this message is scrawled and echoed by the lace colors. The Supercourt comes with blue, the Continental 80 with red, while the Stan Smith and Superstar go for their classic green and black, respectively.
