Adidas, Allbirds release low-carbon running shoe
RetailDive.com says eight months after introducing the Futurecraft Footprint shoe concept, Allbirds and Adidas on Dec. 13 announced the commercial launch of the product, which will be available on both retailer's apps and in select stores, as well as online at Adidas.

At $120 per pair, the initial drop will have limited quantities, with four new colorways set to launch in a broader rollout this spring. The companies have been collaborating on the low-carbon performance shoe for two years. The shoe produces 2.94 kilograms of CO2 per pair, which is a personal best for both brands, according to a press release. The new product is based on Adidas' Lightstrike midsole, but was redesigned to use Allbirds' bio-based sugarcane material.
