The adidas x Parley initiative goes beyond crafting sleek iterations of sneakers: it aims to make a statement about the way that shoes are produced. Each pair up-cycles an average of 11 bottles of ocean plastic in the laces, heel webbing, heel lining, and sock liner covers, which cements the partnerships’ commitment to smart, environmentally-conscious design. Three models make up this pack, each in a medley of blues meant to highlight the hues of the ocean. The UltraBoost features Parley branding on the tongue, a Primeknit upper, and a unique stitched heel cup over a white Boost midsole and white Continental outsole. The UltraBoost Uncaged also boasts a Primeknit upper with tonal branding on the inner portion of the forefoot, also over a white Boost midsole and outsole with Parley heel branding. Finally, women get an UltraBoost X, with the raised Adaptive Arch for freedom of motion and support, along with a fabric cage and plastic heel cup with Parley branding on the heel.
All 3 styles will be available tomorrow at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available at noon EST Wednesday, May 10th in-store at both Packer locations.

The cage is also lifted to show the arch while the mixed blue and pink Primeknit upper and sock construction keep the shoe extra light. Boost cushioning softens the landing, while a Continental outsole provides traction.
