adidas and Parley‘s sustainability-focused partnership is constantly evolving, expanding and changing, and for its latest chapter it’s landed on a brand-new 4D silhouette. Dubbed the 4D Parley, this fresh style blends high-end adidas Running tech with Parley’s signature recycled ocean plastics for a look that’s sleek, sustainable and stark.
Arriving in “Core Black/Blue Spirit,” the 4D Parley’s overall shape is somewhat reminiscent of adidas Consortium‘s memorable Futurecraft 4D. The entire upper is dressed in black, with wavy “Blue Spirit” stitching reaching from heel to forefoot to add oceanic texture and flair. If you look closely, you’ll see that the midfoot also features a tonal Three Stripe graphic.
Unlike most other Parley/adidas products, there’s no overt branding: the tongue features a tonal adidas hit, and the only Parley embellishment is present on the insole. Down below, a jet black 4D-printed midsole offers a signature latticed look, and a black rubber outsole grounds the style both literally and figuratively.
The adidas 4D Parley will release on the adidas UK webstore come August 7, and is priced at £200 GBP (approximately $262 USD).
