Just a few weeks after Stella McCartney introduced garments made from Mylo, a new vegan and sustainable leather alternative, Adidas has followed suit and released a pair of their iconic Stan Smiths made from the same material.
If you haven’t heard about the groundbreaking invention of Mylo, here’s a quick recap. Developed by biotech firm Bolt Threads, Mylo is an entirely biodegradable vegan leather that’s made from the vegetative part of a fungus.
The new Stan Smith Mylo shoes will feature a brown rubber midsole, while the upper will be made from Mylo. Instead of the usual titanium white leather found on most Stan Smith shoes, the Mylo version presents a warm, cream-hued body instead.
