Converse has not only been a staple in everyone’s footwear wardrobe at some point, but also an icon across Hollywood with cameos in every movie we can think of. The iconic shoe brand recently took a step toward sustainability with Converse Renew.

Their new sustainable line shows their commitment towards a waste-free future, and we can’t get enough.

When talking about the new drop of their sustainable line, they said, “​​We re-engineered knit and repurposed scraps from the manufacturing process to move your favorite style icons toward a zero-waste future.”

Their latest line is a fun stretch knit with a crater foam sole made from 12% recycled rubber. They have done shoes in the past for their sustainable line with renewed cotton, denim, and canvas.

A big corporation like Converse taking a step towards sustainability is huge, and we couldn’t be more excited to shop.

In this day and age it’s common for big companies to do some greenwashing — claiming to be more sustainable than they are and then upcharging.

While Converse is still producing their normal shoes, it’s refreshing to know they created a fully sustainable line with scraps from their manufacturing.

Their Converse Renew sustainable line is more expensive, but not by much. It’s not perfect but they’re striving to make a difference. That’s what matters.
