Better Shoes for a Better Planet
LANE EIGHT’s sustainability journey is not unlike a fitness journey: starting is everything, failure is inevitable, adjustment is vital, and practice makes perfect.
On our journey to reduce our environmental impact, we’re looking at ways to incorporate the greenest materials and processes to build the most sustainable, high performance footwear. By using the best materials and working with the best partners, we will be carbon net zero by 2030.
Welcome to the future of performance
Our Journey Thus Far...
We launched the Trainer AD 1. Designed for the Everyday Athlete, our signature shoe combined all-day comfort, performance, and style, making these the ultimate versatile workout shoe.
We introduced an updated AD 1 featuring a recycled polyester knit upper and a BLOOM Algae-based midsole. Every pair incorporates the equivalent of 11 recycled single-use plastic bottles. Thanks to the algae content in the BLOOM soles, each pair also captures 64 cubic meters of CO2 and returns 31.5 litres of clean water back to the local environment.
We debuted our second model: the HIIT Trainer, featuring a Tencel plant-based upper.
We calculated the carbon footprint of the Trainer AD 1 and HIIT Trainer using a lifecycle assessment (LCA).
We partnered with Carbonfact to verify our LCA measurements and publish them on our site.
We also developed our strategy for carbon offsets with a focus on carbon removal.
Understanding Our Carbon Footprint
As part of our journey to Carbon Net Zero, we’re measuring our impact and publishing the carbon footprint of our products. We track five key areas - materials, manufacturing, distribution, product use, and end of life - and combine the carbon intensity of each to determine the carbon footprint of each model.
