Adidas has partnered with environmental organisation Parley for the Oceans to launch football boots made of plastic waste from the seas.

The Adidas Football x Parley Boot Pack uses ocean plastic, re-imagined plastic waste, intercepted on remote islands, beaches, coastal communities and shorelines to produce the shoes and prevent the materials from polluting the ocean.

"Boasting stunning lucid blue and white colourways and elegant wave-patterned designs spanning all of its key boot franchises - Predator Accuracy, X Speedportal and Copa Pure - the new pack strengthens adidas commitment to contributing to help reduce plastic waste," read an Adidas statement.

"Continuing to deliver the best for the athlete on the pitch while striving to make a difference off of it, the footwear drop is the latest chapter of a journey started in 2015 when adidas first partnered with Parley for the Oceans and saw the opportunity to turn a problem into performance by integrating Parley Ocean Plastic across a number of football apparel jerseys.

"While not the solution for saving our oceans, this innovation represents the brand's commitment towards replacing virgin polyester with recycled solutions by 2024 wherever possible."

The Predator Accuracy boots are available for £230 ($280/€260), while the X Speedportal and Copa Pure items are priced at £230 and £220 ($265/€250), respectively, for the most expensive versions while cheaper alternatives of each are also on sale.

Running shoes, sweatshirts, shorts, hoodies, t-shirts, water bottles, sweatpants and leggings are also available in the collaboration with Parley for the Oceans.

Adidas is facing its first annual loss in three decades after ending its nine-year partnership with Ye, the American rapper formerly known as Kanye West.

The German sportswear brand split with the 45-year-old last October after he made several antisemitic remarks on social media, resulting in the end of Yeezy-branded products.

It is reported that the Yeezy range accounted for eight per cent of Adidas' total sales in 2021 after generating $2 billion (£1.6 billion/€1.8 billion) that year.

Bjørn Gulden, the new chief executive of Adidas, said it had yet to decide what to do with the unsold stock of Yeezy products which is reportedly worth around $1.3 billion (£1.1 billion/€1.2 billion).

If Adidas opts to dispose of the products, it could see the company’s profit drop by $500 million (£414 million/€468 million) and suffer its first annual operating loss in 31 years.
