adidas Originals has reunited with Parley for the Oceans, and this time around the collaborative silhouette takes the form of the NMD_CS1, presented in a minimalist design with a contoured, sock-like fit. The shoe is made to reflect the two brands' commitment to reducing marine plastic pollution, featuring a one-piece Primeknit upper woven with Parley Ocean Plastic yarn, composed of up-cycled plastic waste harvested from beaches before it floats out into the ocean. The blue color scheme is clearly inspired by the colors of the ocean, with contrasting black stripe detailing and a branded woven heel pull adding final design flourishes. Classic NMD Boost tooling in white, complemented by tonal EVA insert plugs and a recycled rubber outsole, rounds out the details.
Retailing for $220, the kicks drop March 31st at select retailers and adidas.com.
