Sneaker Impact would love for everyone to wear recycled or reused sneakers, but we understand that being able to pick up a new pair of fresh sneakers can provide a bit of style and confidence in some instances. While a new pair isn’t necessary for you to feel good about yourself, it doesn’t hurt to get a nice new crispy white pair of court shoes, even if you aren’t hitting the court. Below are sneakers made with a more conscientious method of make. The list isn’t in order at all. We aren’t recommending them either hence there aren’t any links to the sites. We just thought you might like to see a list of sneakers that you can feel just a little bit better about buying.
