Following it’s successful use of Parley technical yarn fibres (made from up-cycled ocean plastic from fishing nets and debris intercepted in coastal areas) in the iconic UltraBOOST Uncaged Parley trainers,  adidas has unveiled its SS17 Parley swim range.

Econyl® regenerated materials offer the same high quality and performance as the material usually found in wider swim apparel, but with the additional environmental benefits of using regenerated waste.

The adidas Parley swim collection launches with two distinct designs: a wave print that references the source of its fabric, and a Parley inspired graphic. Uniting form with performance-focused function, both designs are finished with adidas’s unique Infinitex+ Pulse and flat lock seams, enabling the range to be 100% chlorine resistant for endless training support and the highest level of comfort.

Already making waves to reduce the environmental footprint of its products, the Parley swim range is the latest addition to adidas’s wider swim portfolio that reflects the brand’s commitment to developing and implementing sustainable fabrics at scale. 50% of all adidas swim apparel is made from recycled material with 76% of adidas pool collection incorporating recycled polyamide.
