Adidas Makes Biodegradable Sneaker From Artificial Spider Silk

has just unveiled the first performance shoe made from artificial spider silk . The Futurecraft Biofabric, which debuted at the Biofabricate conference in New York City on Thursday, features an upper made from Biosteel , a 100 percent biodegradable filament derived from the same proteins that spiders use to make their tougher-than-Kevlar yet ultra-pliable webbing. Developed by Germany’s AMSilk , the fibers are said to be 15 percent lighter than their conventional synthetic counterparts, with the added potential of being the “strongest fully natural material available,” according to Adidas. Other purported benefits of the bio-based textile include moisture management, breathability, and protection against bacterial growth. Another plus? It’s completely vegan.
