RE-PURPOSED PLASTIC-ADIDAS PARLEY Kicks

A recent Puerto Rico Ironman 70.3-had us appreciating (experiencing) the clean ocean waters.

Which is partially why we heart big time...that plastic bottles -retrieved and recycled by non-profit Parley For The Oceans- end up as uppers in the continuing popular collaboration with the sport-performance-fashion giant,  Adidas. 
(Other reasons-comfort, good looks, functional).

The snazzy looking Parley kicks' collection has sold over a million-and counting. New Spring additions for ADIDAS OUTDOORS- feature quick dry climacool® woven uppers made from recycled yarns and outsoles boasting the brand's grippy Traxion®or Stealth® rubber outsoles (in Boat and Voyager $90-$120 ).
