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…]

ultraman

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ultraman, Converse is releasing three new sneakers for Ultraman, Eleking, and Alien Baltan in their Converse x Ultraman collection.

These designs include the All-Star Ultraman R HI with a red and silver color scheme, the All-Star Eleking R HI with a black-and-white pattern that glows in the dark and the low-cut All-Star Vartan Say Jin R Slip OX which has Baltan-themed coloring and textures. The sneakers also have an image of each character on the soles.

The downside is that the collection is only available in Japan, but I’m betting Ultraman fans know how to get things from Japan when they really want them. Check out the entire collection below…
