These super light running shoes are actually made of sugar

If you’re always thinking about your carbon footprint every step of the way, then the new sneakers from ASICS might just be the shoes to invest in. The GEL-LYTE III CM 1.95 shoes, which will hit the market early next year, are made with recycled and solution-dyed polyester on the trainer upper and mesh of the sock liner.

The average running shoe emits about 13 kg of carbon dioxide due to the materials used and the way they are disposed of, normally in landfills. The new ASICS sneakers only emit 1.95 kg per pair, so they are a real contender for the best eco-friendly running shoes.
