There are many factors to consider when shopping for new sneakers. Can they keep up with you at the gym? Are they stylish enough to wear all day? Are they comfortable and supportive? The list goes on!

But another question to ask yourself is, are they sustainably made? From sneakers made with organic materials to recycled rubber and eco-friendly processes, there are tons of amazing sustainable sneakers on the market that you can shop right now. Keep scrolling to shop five brands that sell top-quality sustainable sneakers for women (and men!). 

1. Allbirds

Why it’s great: Allbirds has quickly become a household name due to how comfortable and eco-friendly its shoes are. The brand utilizes recycled bottles, cardboard, merino wool and castor bean oil in its designs. 

What to shop: Allbirds’ Wool Runners are ideal for wearing all day long and come in over 10 different colors. Plus, they’re also machine washable and work to minimize odor. [Editor’s note: I have these and can vouch for how comfortable they are!]
