Check Out These Adidas Sneakers Made From Ocean Trash And Illegal Fishing Nets Taken From Poachers

These have got to be the coolest Adidas sneakers you’ve ever seen. The latest concept sneaker by the popular brand is the result of a partnership with a multidisciplinary creative environmentalism organization called Parley For The Oceans. Together the two teams have created a sustainable sneaker made entirely from ocean waste, such as plastic and fishnets.

Fishnets are a huge source of pollution that kills sea life everyday. The plastic particles used to make these concept shoes comes with a wild story. Many of the fishnets collected for the concept came from the Sea Shepherds, a group of environmentalists based out in the ocean. For a total of 110 days Sea Shepherds followed and tracked illegal poachers wanted by Interpol off the coast of West Africa. As a result they discovered and captured around 72km of illegal gillnets.

The Sea Shepherds are just downright good people, case and point: when the poachers’ boat unexpectedly sunk, the environmentalists jumped in to help save each and every one of them.

The upper portion of the shoe will be made out of recycled plastics and actual green net fibers. The base of the sneaker will be made with other sustainable materials.

Cool I like those.

I'm a 14 wide and Adidas just aren't a comfortable fit.

I might consider if they start making shoes from recycled California plastic straws retrieved from law enforcement storage units.

Virtue signalling wankers.

I despise bullshit like this but if sheep want to bleat that this is a good thing and pretend that they are doing anything for the planet go for it.

But that was NEW garbage!

I don't mind Adidas, probably because I get 50% off anything thanks to a friend who works for them

I wouldn't buy these garbage shoes even at 50% off! There's something weird about that in my mind
