Graphene Footwear
Graphene's uses are being expanded into performance footwear
Trend - While still being researched for its potential, graphene is being used by early adopters to create sustainable footwear. The lightweight material's benefits include durability, thermoregulation and water resistance--making it particularly useful for performance and work wear.

Insight - Brands that specialize in activewear have the same sustainability goals as those in adjacent industries, but with additional factors to consider--such as how those materials hold up in intense conditions and over time. Both new and longstanding brands in this space are exploring materials that allow for more sustainable production in order to hit sustainability targets and appeal to eco-conscious consumers--but without sacrificing the shelf life of the product.
Workshop Question - How could your brand make use of graphene to improve its product?
