Just recently Adidas started a collaboration with the Parley institute (…parley for the oceans), together they started a project to bring some nice looking sneakers produced out of ocean plastic into shops (more than 90% out of recycled materials). The goal of parley for the oceans is to raise awareness for our oceans and collaborate on projects that can end their destruction.
Hard facts about the sneakers (Ultraboost uncaged parley boots):
- limited to 7000 pieces for the first release
- Price: 220 USD
- next batch to be expected in 2017 with a lot size of 1Mio. pieces
Additionally to the sneakers Adidas also designed a special limited edition of football shirt for Bayern München and for Real Madrid, but our focus in this article will be on the Sneakers.
The boots can be bought tomorrow 7am Pacific time in the Adidas online store, additionally to the boots you can also get some football shirts in the limited parley edition.
Good luck to grab a pair tomorrow, I expect a price rise of 200-300% after they are sold out.
