Adidas x Parley UltraBOOST Uncaged

Nov 7, 2016

Category: Style

Despite years of trying, we can’t seem to keep our oceans, our national parks, or even our own towns and cities free of trash. But it looks like there still may be hope. Environmental group Parley and Adidas are coming together to try and do their part with the Adidas x Parley UltraBOOST Uncaged.

Later this month the athletic apparel giant will be selling 7,000 pairs of a special edition of their UltraBOOST with an upper made entirely of recycled ocean plastic and polyester – effectively turning the trash that is plaguing our oceans into a resource from which they can build new shoes. Other than the change in sourcing of materials and the ocean-like weave of the back heel counter – the sneakers will remain unchanged. It still features a soft sock-like feel to it and sits on a Boost midsole with the Continental natural rubber Stretchweb outsole and Torsion bar for all of your running and walking comfort. If all goes according to plan, you can get your hands on a pair of these starting mid November. Prices are expected to sit above $100. [Purchase]
