Shoes made from sustainable materials and ocean waste, an innovative footwear concept by adidas and Parley for the Oceans.
Adidas collaborated with Parley for the Oceans, an organization dedicated to raise awareness about the pollution of our oceans. About a month ago, they presented their first footwear concept at the United Nations headquarters in New York City. These innovative and very stylish shoes were made from ocean waste. To be exact, their coating is made of illegal deep-sea gillnets.
This concept illustrates the possibilities as well as the inventiveness born from this collaboration. It’s a first look at a range of innovative products, which will come later this year.
With this first concept, adidas shows that fashion design can go hand in hand with environmental protection. I guess we can look forward to further releases and I really hope that some of the concepts will make it to a series production.
