adidas Embraces Organic Leather Alternative “Mylo”, Debuting on Stan Smith

Eddie Paz

adidas has announced they will begin using a new material in their manufacturing processes called Mylo Unleather. Created by long-time adidas founders’ Bolt Threads, Mylo is a “a​ high-quality alternative for animal and synthetic-based leather …[crafted from] mycelium cells grown on beds of sawdust and other organic material“. Mylo is not only organic and capable of being lab-grown, it can be tanned and embossed into all the same shades and textures as the leading animal and synthetic leather products. The material helps bridge the gap between the harsh production processes of synthetic leather and the unsustainability of animal leather. Debuting on as the upper of an all-new Stan Smith with an organic rubber midsole, Mylo will slowly find its way onto an array of adidas products moving forward.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
