adidas, Parley come up with eco-friendly shoesadidas, Parley come up with eco-friendly shoes

PARLEY — a global network of creators, thinkers and leaders coming together to raise awareness for the beauty and fragility of our oceans and collaborate on projects that can end their destruction — has joined forces with adidas Originals to create an eco-innovative shoe, the EQT Support ADV sneaker, available in two colorways. The custom, one-piece, two-tone knitted upper is made partially using recycled Parley Ocean Plastic created from upcycled plastic waste that has been intercepted on Maldivian beaches and coastal communities before it reaches the ocean. The adidas Originals EQT Support ADV by Parley celebrates the rebirth of a shoe that was born in the 1990s on the foundation of form and function. The silhouette is informed by only what is essential to its performance and this is embedded in its design. Limited stocks of the EQT Support ADV sneaker will be available at select adidas retailers. Both colorways will retail for P8,695.

MUJI designs water repellent, comfy sneakersMUJI designs water repellent, comfy sneakers

MUJI created its own comfortable sneakers that won’t tire your feet. The sneakers are not sports shoes nor special walking shoes. These are the reliable pair of sneakers that you can slip on everyday. With this purpose, MUJI designs sneakers that are easy to walk in and will not strain your feet. Behind its deceptively simple style are many beneficial details: they come with a removable cupped insole that has a generous padding at the arch and base of the toes to naturally guide the body to its best walking form. The outer sole is designed in a wave shape for superior flexibility, which allows one to easily shift their center of gravity. In addition, the sneakers are pre-treated with water repellent technology to keep feet dry and to prevent mud and puddles from staining its fabric. MUJI has branches at Bonifacio High Street Central, Greenbelt 3, Power Plant Mall in Rockwell, and Shangri-La Plaza East Wing.
