PUMA‘s first sustainable sneaker, the PUMA Re-Suede has returned for Fall 2012. The refashioned version of the classic silhouette is constructed from recycled materials along the upper, sockliner, laces and sublining, plus innovative new outsole material called Double R Rice Rubber, made in part from rice husk filler. Recycled polyester fibers are the ingredient to make the synthetic suede material, produced by a chemical recycling process that reduces both energy consumption and CO2 emission by 80%. Available in four different colorways — black/green/yellow, indigo/grey, red/grey and black/grey — the PUMA Re-Suede comes packaged in a sustainable “Clever Little Bag.” The kicks drop tomorrow at London’s Foot Patrol.
