These adidas running shoes are green in more ways than one

In an inspiring feat of recycling, sports wear brand adidas has unveiled a unique, sustainable prototype - a running shoe made out of materials from ocean waste and fishing nets. With a stylish green contoured fabric on top of a signature adidas sole, the shoe is bound to appeal to sporty types and treehuggers alike.

The prototype was created in the framework of a partnership with Parley for the Oceans, an environmental initiative that’s all about raising awareness about the beauty and fragility of the oceans. Aside from the shoe, adidas has been gradually integrating green business practices such as using responsibly-sourced cotton, recycled polyester, and phasing out the use of plastic bags in retail stores.

A release date for the futuristic shoe is yet to be set, though adidas has scheduled the launch of its new sustainable collection for Spring 2016.
