(CNN) - Reebok's new sneaker might look average, but it's what's on the inside - and outside - that counts.

A limited number of NP UK Cotton + Corn sneakers are now available on the company's website.

The upper material is 100-percent cotton and the sole is corn-based, making it a USDA certified bio-based product.

Reebok also doesn't use any dyes on the shoes, to maintain eco-friendly credentials.

The price tag is $95 for men and women.

The company said more cotton and corn items are in the works.
