Adidas has revealed the new Futurecraft.Loop, a 100 percent recyclable performance running shoe that is meant to contribute to the global battle against plastic waste. Each component of the shoe is made from 100 percent reusable TPU. Furthermore, the shoe is made using one material type and no glue, whereas athletic footwear typically includes material mixes and component gluing, resulting in a shoe which can only be downcycled. Once the Futurecraft.Loop has come to the end of its first life, it can be returned to Adidas, which will wash it and turn it into pellets to be melted into material for components for a new pair of shoes, with no waste and nothing thrown away.
