Since 2016, the adidas Parley collaboration has been working together to raise awareness of plastic entering our oceans. The brands have come together to create some of the most iconic sneakers of the past few years.
Having released instantly recognisable colourways on fan favourite silhouettes, this collaborative effort has produced famous UltraBoosts, both OG and Uncaged, as well as NMDs and the occasional AlphaBounce.
Often using a colour palette reminiscent of the ocean, these tonal blue creps are always a hit with fans of the 3-stripe brand. Let us not forgot the OG white and turquoise iteration that is a grail for many sneakerheads.
Using Parley Yarn on the shoes upper, this material is constructed entirely of recycled plastic found on beaches. Couple this with the use of BOOST and you have both a functional and aesthetically pleasing crep.
The social and conscious issue raised by the 2 brands has stretched far beyond the sneaker scene.
