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 ...
The adidas Stan Smith sneakers first saw the light of day in 1973, originally designed for a tennis star named, unsurprisingly, Stan Smith. Since then, the iconic low-cut sneaker has successfully stood the test of time. Today, it comes in men's and women's sizes and various colorways. The clean design of the adidas Stan Smith silhouette is completed by the three stripes. The result of years of refinement combined with the preservation of tradition resulted in an even simpler and sleeker sneaker, which is rightfully called one of the most popular sneakers in adidas history.
Thanks to their origins, the adidas Stan Smith sneakers initially dominated the tennis courts. Exceptionally, you'll still find them there today, though you are more likely to encounter them in the city streets as part of everyday outfits. The wide range of styles is partly to blame. These legendary sneakers have also become the basis for various collaborations with artists, including a recent collab with Human Made.
So treat yourself to these white sneakers ideal for the summer. Get yourself the legacy of a sports legend in the form of the adidas Stan Smith sneakers.
