On Friday, the Parley x Adidas Ultra Boost LTD in white blue releases in stores for $200, a $20 increase from the original Ultra Boost design.
Parley is a non-profit organization that raises awareness of pollution in oceans and seas. The Ultra Boost was manufactured using Parley Ocean Plastic, upcycled plastic waste from beaches and coastal communities that collect and clean their beaches before it reaches the water. The Ultra Boost features the Parley Ocean Plastic Primeknit upper. The Boost material in the sole was made from plastic bottles found on beaches.
Adidas and Parley are also organizing a run-a-thon to raise money that will be donated to Parley. For each kilometer a participant runs, Adidas will donate one dollar to the cause.

Finally, the Adidas Yeezy 500 in Supermoon Yellow is arguably one of the biggest sneaker releases this week.
The shoe will be released on Saturday, June 9th for $200, but considering the resale value of older Adidas Yeezy sneakers, the resale value of these shoes will be high.
The upper is composed of suede, leather, and mesh with slight nubuck accents. The design rides on the dad shoe trend as the sole is very thick and the rubber that lines the side is very thick making the shoe look bulky, a quality of most dad shoes.
There are many more releases happening in over next two weeks than the shoes mentioned in this article. To learn more about the shoes releasing over the next two weeks, check out kicksonfire.com.
