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 release of the adidas NMD R1 silhouette was like a loving touch for many fans of stylish and comfortable sneakers. The adidas NMD R1 sneakers with the Boost technology in midsole have quickly become a sought-after piece of city nomads, and you have a unique opportunity to try them for yourself.
And what is so magical about them? The upper of the sneaker is from a breathable and technically quite advanced Primeknit material. The sneakers are not suitable for cold temperatures but are an ideal everyday option in Spring and Summer. Thanks to the aforementioned Boost, which consists of thousands of small particles forming one of the most comfortable sneaker cushions across brands, you won't want to take them off. The adidas NMD R1 sneakers look best in the streets. But you can wear them in the gym or for running. To keep them clean, we would not recommend wearing them in muddy or rainy environments.
