This concept shoe design by Adidas presents an alternative approach to sustainable and socially responsible shoe design. The design is made entirely from plastics retrieved from the ocean.

adidas-parley-plastic-shoe-concept-designboom-03-818x545Designed in collaboration with Parley For The Oceans, the design seeks to encompass the organisation’s mission and values:

‘at parley for the oceans, we want to establish the oceans as a fundamental part of the debate around climate change. our objective is to boost public awareness and to inspire new collaborations that can contribute to protect and preserve the oceans, we are extremely proud that adidas is joining us in this mission and is putting its creative force behind this partnership to show that it is possible to turn ocean plastic into something cool.’
