Brooks Green Silence / a green running shoe

I was super excited to receive Brooks “Green Silence” running shoes for Christmas! They are some of the greenest, most environmentally friendly, running shoes available. I just tried them out this afternoon and I’m happy to report they’re really comfy and supportive — and you’d never be able to tell they aren’t made from normal running shoe materials. Instead, they boast:

-Biodegradable midsole (the first ever created)

-Biodegradable insole and collar foams

-Laces, gillies and reinforced webbing are 100% post-consumer recycled

-Water-based adhesives

-All dyes and colorants are non-toxic

-Packaging is 100% post-consumer recycled

You can purchase a pair of your own here. Here’s the color combo I got:
