Adidas is making sneakers from ocean waste

The new ocean-inspired colouring, Adidas is releasing "Parley" versions of its most popular Boost running shoes: the Ultraboost, Ultraboost X, and Ultraboost Uncaged.

Parley is Adidas' partner in the Parley A.I.R Strategy, which turns ocean plastic waste into the fibre that is woven into running the shoes. Each shoe uses an average of Eleven plastic bottles per pair and incorporates recycled plastic into the shoe's laces, heel webbing, heel lining, and sock liner covers.

"The new additions to the Adidas x Parley collection are another step in our journey to creating one million pairs of Ultrabooks from up-cycled marine plastic," Mathias Amm, a product division director at Adidas, told in a description.

Adidas previously an ocean plastic waste sneaker, but it was a limited release and further of a proof of the idea. These new Boost sneakers are a step forward as Adidas seeks to use further sustainable materials moving forward in its regular contributions.

Adidas reiterated its commitment to green stuff in its recently released sustainability statement, which highlighted that the company is on track to use 100% sustainable cotton by next year. It also said that it saved 80 million plastic shopping bags by switching to paper bags in its stores, and it detailed a commitment to make the new Adidas MLS uniforms with Parley recycled plastic.

The shoes will be available for sale online and in select Adidas stores May 10.
