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 ...
Of the three adidas Forum variants, this is the most reliable one. The adidas Forum Low, unlike its two siblings, fits well in summer and looks great in winter with long trousers - we advise the less tight the better, but leave the styling to you. It's also the adidas Forum Low that attracts the most brands to collaborate with. If you're lucky, you'll find collaborations with M&M's, Xbox, Parley, or Wood Wood - and there are new ones coming in all the time. So don't be afraid to visit this category from time to time and check it out carefully. Because who knows who the iconic tongue strap, combined with the clean retro look of the 80s, will attract for a unique collaboration next time...
