Pinatex X Saucony Originals Shadow 6000 NFG "Earth Day"
Shadow 6000 NFG "Earth Day"
Taking nature’s waste and making something beautiful has been the catalyst for the new Saucony RFG Pack. Three iconic silhouettes meet considered materials, introducing a plant-based leather alternative, Piñatex®. The by-product of pineapple farming is recycled and reused, transforming the classic Jazz Court, Saucony styles into new, purposeful icons.
Upper construction sees leather replaced with Piñatex® and fused together with recycled fabrics. Additionally, partially plant-based mesh is used, and hemp laces add an earthy feel to the styles. Tonal sage, artichoke and natural colourways reflect nature’s bounty, and a pineapple tongue tab nods to the planet ethos and a summer lived outdoors. Future thinking, whilst maintaining fashion and comfort.
Piñatex® is a natural textile, made of fibres from the waste leaves of the pineapple plant. These leaves are a by-product from existing pineapple harvest, which means that the raw material requires no additional environmental resources to be produced. Piñatex is made of up to 95% renewable resources. Piñatex is a PETA approved vegan textile and REACH compliant, certifying that no hazardous chemicals are used in its production. Ananas Anam, the maker of Piñatex®, is a Certified B Corporation®.
