Lane Eight

The homegrown trainer brand Lane Eight creates no ordinary shoes—its Trainer AD 1 is designed with sustainable materials that are put to creative use. 

To start with, the foam midsole is made from algae, which returns 31.5 litres of fresh water back to the environment and removes 64 cubic meters of carbon from the atmosphere. The knit upper is made from recycled polyester yarn made with 11 plastic bottles, while the panels are extremely lightweight and durable thanks to the vegan microfibre.
