Default Those sold for $220 a pair

The German athletic gear giant Adidas is a long-running a leader in sustainable clothing, and is taking a closer look at how it can manufacture its popular sneakers more responsibly.

And the company told the United Kingdom daily The Independent it plans to manufacture 1 million pairs of Ultraboost shoes made from repurposed ocean plastic this year.
