The New Balance 070, a vegan-friendly trail shoe, is now available in stores. It uses material-saving design and eco-friendly materials like rice husk rubber, water based adhesives and reduced impact synthetics.

According to the shoe's website, the NB70 is “made with a reduced waste design and recycled materials” and will help you “step into a smaller carbon footprint.”

The crunchy apple green color is a nice granola touch too!
