Sneakers made from Amsterdammers' used bubble-gum

Gumshoe sneakers are made with rubber derived in part from gum chewed by residents of Amsterdam, made jointly with Gumdrop, whose gum recycling bins are used to collect feedstock for processes that create plastics and rubbers.

Gumshoes promise to ship on Jun 18, and you can preorder for €50/pair.
