They Pulled Garbage Out Of The Ocean To Create Something Totally New

The shoes are created using plastic salvaged from the ocean. Most of it comes in the form of illegal deep-sea fishing nets — that’s all the green, ropey material you see here.

After collecting all of these nets, an idea was born.

And yes, they looked pretty hardcore while they cleaned up the planet.

The concept for the shoe was created in only six days, and it debuted at the UNx Parley event on June 29.

Pulling the nets out of the ocean not only provides material for new products, but also gives immediate relief to creatures that get caught in them.

The shoes are created using the plastic filaments and fibers that originally made up the gillnets.
