Reebok Delivers Sustainable Performance with New Nano X1 Vegan
Made of 100% Animal-Free Materials, the ‘Official Shoe of Fitness’ Goes Vegan with Latest Offering
BOSTON, MA – March 31, 2021: Building off its initial debut from earlier this year, Reebok’s ultimate training shoe, the Nano X1, gets a sustainable makeover this Earth Month, with the release of the all-new Nano X1 Vegan. The Nano X1 Vegan, with all the wearability, comfort and versatility you’d expect, is an animal-free, USDA Certified Biobased Product featuring a minimum of 40% bio-based materials.
The Nano X1 Vegan is made up of 100% animal-free materials and products, featuring a cotton and wood spun yarn upper, castor bean oil and EVA foam midsole, and natural rubber outsole. Key performance attributes remain true to the award-winning silhouette, providing wearers with:
- Comfort: fusing Reebok’s Floatride Energy cushioning of a running shoe while maintaining the performance and stability of a training shoe
- Speed: the sleek shape and design allow for maximum speed and runnability
- Control: providing designed stability to support varied workouts
“At Reebok, one of our goals is to create innovative solutions that will help build a fitter planet without impacting product performance,” said Tal Short, Reebok Senior Product Manager. “We have a responsibility not just to design and create with our consumers in mind, but also planet Earth. Products like the Nano X1 Vegan are small, but important steps we’re taking towards our bold future sustainability ambitions as a brand.”
Reebok’s new Nano X1 Vegan joins the list of several eco-friendly footwear releases from the brand this month including key additions in the [REE]GROW and [REE]CYCLED categories - two of the brand’s biggest sustainability initiatives - with the debut of Floatride Energy GROW running shoe and Zig Kinetica II [REE]CYCLED. All Reebok [REE]GROW products are made with at least 50% plant-based materials, while all [REE]CYCLED products feature an upper made of at least 30% recycled materials.
