Old Sofas, Used CDs, and Water Bottles Make Green Silence Running Shoes A Big Deal

DesignTracker| If the story behind Green Silence marathon racing shoes doesn’t bring a smile to your face, the shoe photos will. Don’t these shoes look like you could just fly in them? Alright, I know that marathon runners are a serious lot.

I love products with stories behind them. Tell me that my running shoes are made from recycled CDs, old sofas, and water bottles — to cite just some of the garbage in these shoes — and I’m a happy camper.

The Green, Inc. blog points out that environmentalists aren’t completely happy with the Green Silence shoe heritage. Products aren’t sourced locally but shipped halfway around the world.
