The Norm sustainable sneakers are an eco-friendly fashion product that aims to shake up perceptions of how footwear is made and the kind of effects it can have on the environment.
Crafted from 90% recycled materials, the sneakers are reported by the brand to have an 80% lower carbon footprint compared to traditional sneakers. Water-based glue is used to keep the components of the shoe attached, while also enabling the footwear to one vegan-approved and free of animal-based adhesives.
The Norm sustainable sneakers have a distinctly stylish aesthetic and speak to the rising number of consumers seeking out ways to reduce their carbon footprint in small yet effective ways. As concerns regarding waste and climate change increase, we'll likely continue see more brands and designers create products with a stronger focus on sustainability.
