People pour plastics into oceans like there's no tomorrow. It comes up to more than eight million tons in a year. There's probably no trick or a single solution that could resolve the situation, which we as humans got into, with a snap of a finger. We can fight the big battle with smaller steps though. Such example is the result of the collaboration between adidas and Parley For The Oceans - sneakers that are made from plastic bottles pulled out from the sea. Each pair of adidas x Parley is made of more than ten plastic bottles, which is definitely better than leaving the bottles to decompose at the bottom of the ocean for centuries ...
These are not just plain canvas shoes. The adidas Nizza sneakers are made of the best materials, and thanks to their reinforced seams, they can withstand a heavy load. There are better shoes on the market to cross the Alps in, but the adidas Nizza sneakers will be a reliable companion in the city, at a party, or on an occasional trip to nature. The sneakers will surely meet all your expectations.
From basketball fields to the city
The design of the adidas Nizza sneakers has its origins in a perhaps unexpected place. Experts will recognize the shape and overall appearance of the silhouette, which returns to the original concept of basketball shoes of the '80s.
Don't worry, you can still easily throw some three-pointers with the Nizza kicks on. The sole has high durability thanks to its hardness, balanced out by a special OrthoLite insole with a significant comfort contribution.
So get yourself a pair of the adidas Nizza canvas sneakers in the women's or men's version. There are plenty of sizes available, and the color spectrum ranges from white to the darkest black.
Textile: is a lightweight material, which is offered in a very wide color scale and is mainly used for summer footwear.
