New Balance. NewSKY.

12 Apr

The NewSKY by New Balance is their Eco-friendly shoe who’s upper consists of 95% recycled plastic bottles. This shoe is similar to the basic New Balance but it is a bit more minimal in more ways than one. It looks quite minimal and it is actually made with less material than the average running sneaker. So I guess, minimal, is actually a good way to describe these kicks 🙂

8 recycled bottles are used to make enough fabric for each pair of NewSKY sneaks, the polyester fabric that is made from these bottles is strong and durable. One pound of this fabric takes about 12 recycled plastic bottles to make, so see it is all adding up. It would be even better if everyone just started making all polyester Eco-friendly since it is a plastic compound to being with. Anyways, the Eco-Fi fabric they use weighs less than cotton and protects from the cold better than wool, therefore your sneakers will be light and warm, as well as Eco-friendly.
