The shoe features a Primeknit upper made from a mix of Ocean Plastic, a material created from plastic waste retrieved by Parley coastal interception and clean-up operations in the Maldives (95 percent) and recycled polyester (5 percent).
Each pair adidas originals extaball reuses the equivalent of 11 plastic bottles. The shoe laces, heel cap base material, heel webbing, heel lining and the sockliner cover are also made with recycled materials.
