An Eco-Friendly Running Shoe


All of you joggers out there probably know that Brooks makes some of the best running shoes around. What you may not know is that the company now makes enviro-friendly sneakers, too. The new Brooks Cascadia 2 running shoe is made from so-called "green rubber," which uses silicon rather than petroleum for a more environmentally friendly product. Petroleum-based rubbers not only use up fossil fuels but are also rumored to release carcinogenic dioxins during production.

Designed in part by vegan marathoner Scott Jurek, the Cascadia 2 shoe lets you go trail running guilt-free. And though running shoes aren't typically valued for their style, I think these are kind of cool looking—you know, for a running shoe. You can buy the Cascadia for $95 here.
