Adidas Originals introduced the new Stan Smith collection Forever, made from recycled plastic.
Adidas entered a collaboration between designer Stella McCartney and New York organization Parley for the Oceans in 2017. By creating practical applications for marine litter, they created new shoes that both look great and do not harm the environment.
Adidas continues to produce shoes from plastics that are still thrown into the ocean today. There are currently many models of shoes made from recycled plastic.
Adidas uses 100% recycled plastic in its new shoe model
The new model was created as part of the brand’s #ENDPLASTICWASTE initiative to tackle plastic waste. The upper is made from 100% recycled materials, while the outsole is made from recycled rubber. The back of the Stan Smith female model is complemented by graphic images of the planet, flowers and arrows. The male model is produced in white and green with an ivory sole.
Adidas’ website states the following about the new Stan Smith model made from recycled plastic:
Adidas Stan Smith Shoes have been an icon for over 50 years. Part of Adidas’ commitment to use only recycled polyester by 2024, this model reshapes the classic style with an outsole made from rubber waste.
This product is made with Primegreen, which is made of high performance recycled materials. 50% of the shoe upper contains recycled material. The model does not contain pure polyester.Adidas
Also, not only shoes, but packaging are now made recyclable and stored in the classic Adidas Originals blue box, which is said to be made from over 990% recycled paper.
In 2020, even a football field was built with a recycling project.
