Between Converse Chucks dyed with food scraps and Jaden Smith designing vegan shoes for New Balance, the world’s biggest athletic brands have made major moves on the sustainability front as of late.
Most recently, German sportswear giant Puma has teamed up with Japanese streetwear brand Wind and Sea to release an eco-friendly collection of minimalist separates and streetwear.
Released on July 25, the collection features hoodies, long-sleeves, t-shirts, shirts, shorts, and shoes. All items are made from organic and unbleached cotton, eliminating the need for chemical-filled bleach and reducing water consumption during production in the process.
All of the apparel is co-branded with the Puma and the Wind and Sea logos, which appear in reflective ink.
In terms of footwear, the collaboration sees Puma’s Ralph Sampson sneaker reimagined, this time in off-white suede, with matching tonal suede overlays. The shoe features the Wind and Sea logo embroidered on the tongue heel and imprinted on the heel. Finally, the shoes feature Puma branding on the midsole, and ““Ralph Sampson” stitched into the mid-panels.
You can get your hands on the collection yourself at the Puma Japan website and the Wind and Sea website.
