These Blue Adidas Sneakers are Made from Ocean Garbage

The blue adidas sneakers are not just ocean-themed, they are made up of garbage from the ocean.

In a partnership with Parley for the Oceans, the Adidas x Parley sneakers resemble the blue water and white froth that can be seen in ocean waves. The blue adidas sneakers are made from old fishing nets near the Maldives that have been left to pollute the ocean. The abandoned nets are first cleaned in order to get rid of any "sea smells." The plastic nets are then "ground down and extruded into threads" that adidas then uses to make these sneakers.

While the impact this specific shoe will have on helping to clean up the world's oceans is minimal, it is a step in the right direction and manages to promote responsible consumerism in the form of a beautiful shoe.
