HERZOGENAURACH, Germany - Monday, 22. April 2024

(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sports company PUMA will make a commercial version of its experimental RE:SUEDE sneaker, the RE:SUEDE 2.0, available for sale. PUMA showed it was able to successfully turn the RE:SUEDE into compost under tailor-made industrial conditions during a two-year pilot project.

As part of the experiment, which was successfully concluded in late 2023, PUMA produced 500 special pairs of its iconic Suede sneaker with materials selected for their ability to decompose, such as Zeology tanned Suede. Volunteers wore the RE:SUEDE for half a year before they returned them to PUMA, so the sneakers could be turned into compost at PUMA’s composting partner in a specially equipped industrial composting set up.

PUMA will now make 500 pairs of the commercial version of this shoe, the RE:SUEDE 2.0, available for sale on puma.com/eu and Zalando Plus starting April 22. The commercial version has been develo ... Read more »
