Adidas' partnership with marine conservationist collective Parley For The Oceans has produced a handful of eco-friendly editions of the Adidas Ultraboost over the past few years. Each pair of Parley Ultraboosts is made of upcycled plastic waste—about 11 bottles, to be precise—that are "intercepted from beaches and coastal communities" before they reach the ocean. These have been released in several ocean/ teal colorways so far.

But the most recent reprise of the Parley collection downplays the recurring teal accents and instead goes for a more subtle navy blue. There are two colorways: Legend Ink (Dark) and Footwear White (Light):







The clincher is that these are listed as E-com Exclusives on the Adidas Philippines website, so we shouldn't expect them to drop at brick-and-mortar stores. That's probably why, unlike every other hyped-up Ultraboost, these haven't been snatched up quite so quickly, and almost all sizes are still available.

So if you're an Ultraboost fan or collector, or maybe just an environmentally conscientious sneakerhead, stop sleeping on these and head to checkout. They retail for a whopping P9,300, but ship for free.
