Who would’ve thought that it would be The U to be the first team to introduce environmentally conscious uniforms?
SOURCE-The University of Miami and adidas today revealed their new environmentally-conscious alternate uniforms for the 2018 season – the first-ever football uniforms featuring repurposed and upcycled materials created in partnership with Parley For The Oceans.
Highlighted by elements of the ocean from top to bottom, Miami’s new special edition adidas x Parley A1 football uniform is composed of over 70% regenerated ECONYL® yarn; a raw material transformed from fishing nets and other nylon waste intercepted in marine environments. As a part of their partnership, adidas x Parley rework these various marine plastic waste materials into technical fibers that create the material framework of a durable, yet breathable fabric that is optimal for adidas performance apparel. In addition to the new eco-innovative uniforms, players will also wear new adizero 7.0 or FREAK x Parley cleats and gloves featuring recycled materials for the September 2 game. The adidas x Parley football cleats mark the first-ever styles of eco-conscious footwear to be debuted on-field for NCAA football competition.
