A Shoe with Sole – Adidas and Gumdrop – Launch Stan Smith Collection

You may remember us telling you about Gumdrop some time ago – brilliant little receptacles for used chewing gum which is then recycled. Gumdrop Ltd collaborate with manufacturers and companies globally in order to offer innovative products made from recycled and processed chewing gum. With Gumdrop’s help, recycled and processed chewing gum can become a vast number of things from wellington boots, to mobile phone covers, stationary, packaging and much more. As well as being used as a more sustainable choice to virgin plastics. And now there is something even more on the Gumdrop horizon…

‘We are incredibly excited to announce the launch of Adidas’s iconic Stan Smith shoe featuring a Gum-tec sole made with recycled chewing gum! Over the next few days we will be talking about the project and the 5 styles created. The ‘Screaming Pink’ featured being the first. These are available to buy from Adidas online now and retailers such as JD Sports. We have been working on this project for some time now so it’s hugely rewarding to see these beauts finally out and available NOW!
Get your hands on a pair and let’s get marching into a future that’s green with a drop of pink!’
