Everybody likes alternate uniforms. After all, it was a bit of a bummer when Adidas discontinued 3rd kits a couple years back.
Luckily, good news is on the horizon. The Parley kits are back and better than ever. (Famously, the LA Galaxy donned the uniforms in a 3-0 loss at home vs. the Sounders last year) Made of recycled yarn captured from beaches, the special edition kits are available on the MLS website for a limited time.
Update: Yeah, they’re all gone. Stay tuned for info on how to snag one.
Also important: They made sure to properly contrast the jerseys this time so fans can watch without getting a headache.
Portland, Ore. April 10th, 2018 – adidas, Major League Soccer and Parley for the Oceans are expanding their efforts to raise awareness and inspire action around the harmful impact of marine plastic pollution by creating full customized uniforms built of technical yarns made using Parley Ocean Plastic™.
Each product is crafted using Parley Ocean Plastic™ upcycled from plastic intercepted on beaches and in coastal communities. Once collected, the original plastic source is reworked into technical fibers that can then be repurposed for use in either apparel or footwear. To commemorate this unique process of repurposing plastic debris, and the greater mission behind it, the message “For the Oceans” is featured in the inside of the neck tape detailing, and each club’s name is featured on the back-neck.
