Saucony has introduced the Jazz Court RFG, a sneaker that contains zero plastic and was made using only seven natural materials: cotton, jute, wool, rubber, wood, gardenia and beet. It is the brand’s first 100 percent sustainable sneaker. The acronym “RFG” stands for “Run for Good,” Saucony’s ethos and global brand platform.
The Jazz Court RFG is a unisex sneaker. The shoe features a canvas upper, an interior lining made with plant-dyed cotton and a 100 percent natural latex rubber outsole. The natural construction of the shoe is further enhanced by its white, beige and brown color palette. The packaging, which uses a newly designed ink-free, recycled cardboard box, also reflects the eco-friendly spirit of the shoe. The label on the shoe box is made with soy-based ink on kraft paper.
