Find out when and where you can get your hands on the statement (and sustainable) Reebok Forever Floatride GROW.

We love it when sneaker brands consider the environment in design and manufacturing, and it's something that we're definitely seeing more often. The huge rise in popularity for collecting sneakers means that waste is a bigger problem than ever.

Fashion label Reformation collaborated with New Balance to drop a sustainable shoe, and just last week, adidas came out with another Stella McCartney collection, although this time, it was to create a vegan leather Stan Smith.

Next to join the list is Reebok. The brand has just announced the upcoming release of a plant-based performance shoe. This isn't going to be an immediate release, but rather some time next year. Keep your eyes peeled! In the meantime, you can shop from Reebok online, ASOS and General Pants Co..

The Forever Floatride GROW is bound to be your next favourite shoe. It's an update of Reebok's existing Forever Floatride Energy. The traditional materials have been replaced with natural alternatives. It's made of castor bean oil, eucalyptus tree, algae and natural rubber.

The sustainable sneaker arrives in a colour palette of neutral tones. This is perfect because you can easily match the shoe with an array of different outfits. The white knit upper is accompanied with a white midsole, gum rubber outsole and beige laces. It features the brand's signature stripes, as well as a mustard brown Reebok tag on the tongue. We can also spot statement Floatride branding at the heel, finishing off the shoe nicely.
