Veja, the French sustainable sneaker company, is introducing its second and lighter performance running shoe, made with special materials. Manufactured in Brazil, the Marlin features a 65 percent bio-based rubber outsole, made from Amazonian rubber and rice waste, and a 60 percent sugar cane midsole. The lining is made from 100 percent recycled plastic bottles. Its L-Foam cushioning, developed from natural rubber, is meant to absorb shocks and provide 80 percent energy return. The Marlin weighs 275 grams and retails in Europe for about €150.
