Amidst upcoming Nike and Air Jordan releases 2019, adidas and Parley for the Oceans have designed a 100% recyclable performance running shoe. For a while now, adidas has been working with Parley for the Oceans to minimize plastic waste in the oceans. Back in 2015, they introduced the world’s shoe having uppers completely made up of recycled ocean gillnets and plastic. 50 pairs of concept and each pair could only be acquired via participation in an Instagram-based competition. In 2019, adidas is aiming to use Ocean Plastic in the production of “11 million pairs of shoes” and by 2024, they will be using “only recycled polyester” in all products.
Alongside this month’s Air Jordan releases 2019, an Ultra Boost Clima designed by adidas Missoni will soon be arriving at select retailers. In case you are wondering, Missoni happens to be a high-end Italian fashion house located in the city of Varese. The Ultra Boost Clima is one of adidas’ many running shoe models. Most recently, it hit the shelves back in June 2018. adidas released two colorways that were simply referred to as “Solar Red” and “Solar Yellow.” They made their retail debuts on June 14th, 2018, each at a price of $200. This will apparently be the very first collaboration between adidas and Missoni.
Apart from the Air Jordan releases 2019 arriving later this month, this BAPE x NEIGHBORHOOD x adidas Collection will also hit the shelves. Of course, this will not be the first time that adidas has collaborated BAPE and NEIGHBORHOOD. However, this is the first collaboration involving all three of these brands. A BAPE x adidas Ultra Boost Collection consisting of two different camo iterations made its retail debut earlier this year on February 2nd, each retailing at a price of $200. Last year, NEIGHBORHOOD was a part of another three-way collaboration that included adidas and BBC, which revolved around the EQT Basketball ADV.
After joining recent adidas releases 2019 in a “Geode” colorways, the Yeezy Boost 700 v2 will soon arrive in a colorway nicknamed “Vanta.” Back in May 2018, Kanye West shared the first photo of the Yeezy Boost 700 v2 on Twitter and even revealed another, different colorway.
When Kanye West returned to the studio in July 2017, he was spotted rocking a new adidas sneaker model somewhat resembling the Yeezy Runner. From that first look, it seemed to be equipped with the unique soles of the EQT Responsive, which was formerly named the KB8 3. By October that year, this model was revealed to be the adidas Yeezy Desert Rat 500. The very first Yeezy 500 colorway that was officially unveiled was “Blush” and it was quite similar to the colorway that recently made its retail debut. The adidas Yeezy Desert Rat 500 colorway that you see here is dubbed “Salt” and it is available now.
