The New Balance newSKY are athletic walking shoes with upper material made from 95% recycled PET material. According to New Balance, every pair of newSKYs are made from approximately 8 PET cola, water, or juice bottles.
Following the motto, “reduce, reuse, recycle,” newSKYs incorporates a minimalist, lace-up design that only weighs 4.1 ounces or 117 grams. The fabric used is called “Eco-fi” and is said to be lighter than cotton and warmer than wool. It’s also quite strong, and can be recycled at end of life.
As per the picture above, the newSKY come in three “neony” colors, grey/blue, grey/green, and grey/pink. The retail price for the NB WW01 newSKY is $94.99. However, you can purchase the same pair of shoes on Amazon.com for $84.99.
Cheers to New Balance for saving the world one shoe at a time!
