"As a runner, you typically have a few pairs of shoes you're rotating through. You may need a different shoe for long runs, another shoe for speed. We might run through a pair in a month and a half. So ideally, you'd have different types that meet different needs, but each pair would be recyclable. A shoe like this could mean that I'm not chucking 10 pairs of shoes in landfill every year. ”⁣ ⁣ Founder of @GirlsRunNYC, @JessieZapo is one of 200 [FUTURECRAFT.LOOP] beta testers. She gave heaps of feedback on GEN 1 and returned it to us. We remade it into Jessie's GEN 2. Zero performance lost. Zero plastic waste. One step closer to our journey to end plastic waste.⁣ ⁣ [FUTURECRAFT.LOOP] Made to be remade. ⁣ ⁣ #FUTURECRAFT LOOP #adidasRunners
