Sustainable style might be everywhere these days—and for good reason. But when it comes to footwear, it feels impossible to find a quality runner that doesn't skimp on mobility and performance. In fact, most deliver unstructured construction and less bounce than your favorite pair of house slippers.

But thankfully, Hylo Athletics is here to change the game.

The upstart makes its signature Corn Runner from seven different renewable, circular, and resource-light materials. A corn-based midsole and heel reinforcement deliver excellent energy return and support while the lightweight corn fiber knit upper, a strong alternative to polyester, keeps things breathable, lightweight, quick-drying, and comfortable. An algae-based insole and natural rubber outsole finish things off, which offer top-of-the-line balance and tradition.

Add a pair to the workout kit right here, where the eco-conscious alternative is available in a number of different colorways.
