Don’t throw these sneakers out — you can compost them

Reebok has just announced its Cotton + Corn initiative, which aims to produce shoes made using sustainable materials.

Once the shoes are worn out, they can be used as compost for a new batch of footwear.

Reebok plans to craft the sole using industrially grown corn, and to use the more familiar cotton material for the upper half.

Renewable sneakers are a tremendous step forward for the footwear industry, and Reebok assures us this is just the beginning.

We can expect to see these shoes on shelves later this year.
