NEW YORK – German sports brand adidas has unveiled what is claimed to be the world's first performance shoe made using Biosteel fibre – a replication of natural silk. The prototype shoe features an upper made from 100 per cent Biosteel fibre, a nature-based and completely biodegradable high-performance fibre, developed by the German biotech company AMSilk. The shoe was unveiled at the Biofabricate Conference in New York as adidas and AMSilk also announced a partnership that will explore the use of Biosteel fibre in performance products on a larger scale.
