There are plenty of legendary sneakers that have graced the pages of Cool Material over the years from the Chucks, Roshe Runs, Jack Purcells, Cortez and the like, but there’s a part of us that will always be partial to the quintessential white sneaker we’ve grown to know and love–even if we don’t know shit about the decades of tennis before we were born–the adidas Stan Smith. This incredible stylish, impeccably crafted and infinitely reinvented sneaker is getting another modern upgrade with the Stan Smith Mylo, the first sneaker to be constructed with a new mushroom-based material that looks and feels like leather while being a more renewable alternative. Amy Jones Vaterlaus, the Global Head of Future at adidas, had this to say–“The introduction of Mylo as a new material is a major step forward in our bold ambition to help end plastic waste. As a planet, we must learn to work with nature rather than against it and put all our efforts into finding innovative solutions that are created responsibly with resources that renew at a sustainable pace. Designed in synergy with earth’s ecosystems. And as a brand, we continue to explore the possibilities in material innovation.” It if looks like a normal Stan, feels like a normal Stan and wears like a normal Stan, then who cares if it’s made out of mushrooms. We welcome the sustainable change.
