In a press release from Adidas and the university, Miamis new special edition adidas X Parley A1 football uniform is said to be composed of over 70% regenerated ECONYL yarn; a raw material transformed from fishing nets and other nylon waste intercepted in a marine environment.
Players will also wear new adizero 7.0 or FREAK x Parley cleats and gloves made out of recycled materials. The Adidas x Parley football cleats marks the first-ever styles of eco-conscious footwear to be debuted on-field for NCAA football competition.
