After being announced as a concept product last year, Adidas is getting serious about making shoes with recycled ocean trash.
Dubbed “Adidas x Parley” the shoe is the result of a collaboration with anti-ocean-pollution organization Parley. The offering will include an upper made from Parley Ocean Plastic and illegal deep-sea gillnets recovered from the Southern Ocean by the non-profit Sea Shepherd.
However, you won’t be able to buy these in a store just yet. Instead, they will be limited to a run of 50 pairs that will be given away through an Instagram contest that will run through July 31st on Parley and Adidas’ various social media accounts. Keep an eye out, as details are expected to be announced shortly.
If it turns out that you don’t win, then you’ll be happy to know that a commercial release integrating Parley Ocean Plastic with one of their “top footwear franchises” is in the works for the second half of the year. Check out the video below. [click to continue…]

Case in point, 20-year-old estate agent George Riggall, who received the pair of jeans pictured above. After posting the photos to Twitter, the company contacted George saying that the added length was intentional so the wearer could “comfortably cuff them”.
As you’ll see below, Twitter provided some evidence that this wouldn’t be a hot look. [click to continue…]

Artist Lingvistov has an obsession with coffee. So much so, that she created a series of illustrated quotes that fellow caffeine addicts are sure to relate to.
They also make it pretty clear that in many cases, the humble coffee bean is the difference between alert and productive workers and those who go through their day with a perpetually extended middle finger.
