adidas has leaked up with environmental organization Parley for the Oceans to design a 3D-printed ocean plastic shoe midsole at the Parley Talks at COP21 to demonstrate how the industry can rethink design and help stop ocean plastic pollution.
“The 3D-printed ocean plastic shoe midsole stands for how we can set new industry standards if we start questioning the reason of what we create. We want to bring everyone from the industry to the table and create sustainable solutions for big global problems.”
The concept shoe consists of an upper made with ocean plastic content and a 3D-printed midsole made from recycled polyester and gillnets.
As of right now there is no release date as this design is just a concept shoe rather than a retail shoe. Check out the additional images below and stay tuned to Sneaker Bar for further updates.
