Special sportswear for the Beijing Winter Olympics by Adidas

Adidas and the environmental organization Parley for the Oceans have designed a joint collection for British athletes competing in the Beijing Winter Olympics.

Featuring the colors of the Union Jack, the Team GB and ParalympicsGB collection consist of a thicker and thinner jacket, leggings and women’s trainers. The special feature of the tops is that they are made from recycled marine plastic waste. The German brand has also supplied female competitors with the recently launched Ultraboost 22 trainers, designed specifically for women’s feet.

Adidas and Parley for the Oceans have already collaborated earlier this year on the occasion of another sporting event: they released a floating tennis court made of recycled plastic at the Great Barrier Reef for the Australian Open.
