These super lightweight running shoes are made from sugar

If you’re always thinking about your carbon footprint with every step, ASICS’ new sneakers might be the shoes to invest in. The GEL-LYTE III CM 1.95 shoes, due for release early next year, are composed of solution-dyed polyester in the shoe’s upper material and the mesh lining of the sock.

The average running shoe emits around 13kg of carbon dioxide due to the materials used and how they are disposed of, typically in landfills. The new ASICS shoes only emit 1.95kg per pair, so they are a real contender for the best eco-friendly running shoes.
