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 new model from the three stripes is a fusion of technological innovation with the influences of the most historically significant part of its archive.

The adidas NMD S1 sneaker is first and foremost a story, so start writing the next chapter.

Rubber: a material that is very easy to maintain and you will appreciate it especially in rainy weather.
