2019 is looking like a great year for sustainable products. We’re witnessing the growth of electric mobility solutions as well as new ways to recycle trash. Last month, Adidas introduced running shoes with components made entirely out of TPU, which is fully recyclable. Shortly after, the German sports apparel company came up with a collaboration with Parley for the Oceans with another eco-friendly take on footwear. Now, it’s ready to take on the green with the Adidas Tour360 XT Parley golf shoes.
With these wrapping around your feet, you get to enjoy your game and help protect our oceans. These exceptional kicks promise comfort and performance with striking good looks on the table as well. The company proves that manufacturers can actually make a conscious effort to preserve our environment. The Tour360 XT Parley earns its place as the world’s first ever golf shoe that uses upcycled materials. In truth, we need more companies to follow this trend in order to reduce waste that goes into the oceans.
According to reports, the yarn they’re using for the sneakers is coming from coastal areas and beaches where plastic waste end up. It then undergoes a special process wherein everything is spun into yarn, which makes up the Primeknit textile upper. Furthermore, to advertise its collaboration with the environmentalist group, the Adidas Tour360 XT Parley sports a cool colorway. The various shades of blue and green remind us of the bodies of water that we need to protect. For superior grip during play, the outsole features eight spikes alongside the brand’s X-TRAXION technology.Only from Adidas
