Reebok has teamed up with National Geographic to launch a new shoe collection inspired by the world’s endangered species. The collection is also influenced by National Geographic’s award-winning visual storytelling, and the shoes are made without any animal products.
The collection features three unique designs, including the Nano X2 Grow Formidable Species, Club C 85 Vegan, and Nano X2 Grow Wild Cats.
The Nano X2 Grow Formidable Species are a plant-based version of the popular Reebok Nano X2 training shoes. The patterns showcase animals such as the Grizzly Bear, Puffer Fish, Poison Dart Frog, and Scorpion.
The Club C 85 Vegan is a version of the company’s Club B shoe, and it honors sixteen different endangered species with patterns dedicated to each animal, including the Galapagos Penguin, Black Rhino, Eastern Gorilla, Ring-tailed Lemur, and Fiji Banded Iguana.
Both of the Nano shoes come in unisex sizing and are made from at least 50 percent plant-based materials.
Reebok has been releasing several vegan versions of its popular shoes over the last few years.
If you have the choice, why not choose vegan and cruelty-free? Large fashion brands are making it easier for consumers to choose ethical options. While some may argue that it’s difficult to shop sustainably when buying new clothes, bold and socially-conscious brands like Tiny Rescue are starting to make a mark by creating activism-focused recycled sweatshirts and tees for the gen-z market. Hopefully, at some point, vegan shoes and clothes will become the norm!
