Adidas has taken on a whole new meaning of recycled shoes… Actually I don’t think I’ve ever seen a company take on this task. I must hand it to Adidas, they’ve come a long way and now their shoe design is on point.
Earlier this week in Paris, Adidas unveiled the 3D-printed Ocean Plastic shoe made from recycled fishing nets and waste plastic thats been filtered out of the ocean. This project is part of Adidas’ continuing partnership with Parley for the Oceans, an initiative that encourages creatives to repurpose ocean waste and raise awareness of the growing issue.
“Together with the network of Parley for the Oceans we have started taking action and creating new sustainable materials and innovations for athletes”
