Complex’s weekly series Don’t Believe the Hype takes a look at what’s hot and what’s just hot air. Sneakers, clothes, tech, food—nothing is safe. The Adidas Ultra Boosts have always been hot, but what happens when a hyped shoe combines with an environmentally good cause? The Parley x Adidas Ultra Boosts are made of mainly recycled plastic found floating in the ocean – that’s right, people are wearing garbage on their feet. But can people tell a difference between the new versions and the original Adidas Ultra Boosts? Speedy finds out in this episode of Don’t Believe The Hype if Complex staffers think the shoes are fire, or just well…trash.

I have worn and run in Uncaged Ultraboost size 7 for a year. I bought a parley version on eBay and it looks genuine but size 7 wears really tight. Also, I feel it has less cushion as well so not sure if I got a fake
So adidas is selling 400gm sea garbage for $200.
I think parley is different in terms of the size of the internal booty. Reg boost is more wider.
Eco-friendly? I don't give a shit. My cause: getting the best shoe for my money.
Dear guys who made this video on complex with all due respect go fuck yourselves. Sincerely proud parley owner
I noticed the Parley Ultraboost tend to be a bit tighter. The inner lining is also quite rough, compared to the normal Ultra boost which has a soft lining. The material by the collar on both shoes are different too, being the Parley feels snug and fit tighter than the normal ones. I am usually size 10.5, with Adidas I go for 11. Parley size 11, feels and fit very nice, whereas normal ultraboost size 11 fits a tiny bit loose but very comfy. Hope this helps.
What kind of dumb host did Complex get to shoot this video … we get it, you're tying to act cool by not giving a fuck about the environment.
what is the non parley ultra boost model? That colorway is dope
I've got a Pair or PARLEY ULTRA BOOST.. GREAT SHOES…
20 dollars more? The shoes are already 180
Quality channel when OC (dbth original) is classed as asking co-workers if a shoe is worth the hype
I bought a pair of ultra boost…..loved them so much….sold all my Jordan's and now only buy ultra boosts….so comfy
Got mine for $119 after a %15 off coupon from when they were on sale at $140.
And in my country they are 5$ chepaer lol
1st not hyped 2nd theyvare preeltty good
They aren’t even hype though
The idea trying to put hype onto everything is already stupid. You care more about hype rather than the cause behind it. This makes this video stupid.
If I spent $200 on a pair of sneakers the last thing I'd do is run in them.
Im still gonna but parley Even if its Worse than normal
Ef adidas… I buy from DHGate
This video is dumb. I bought my parley cs1 on 40% sale, so no one forces you to buy full price.
How the fuck can these dumbasses work for complex but they don’t know what parley is 😂
got myself a pair last week, they fresh as fuck. would have bought them even if I didnt know about the whole eco-friendly thing. but having that makes the purchase seem a lot better. loving them so far
I cliked because I thought that was Hugh Jackman in the thumbnail. 😂
Be a different story if they put them on their feet…
hope someone will agree with me that this is the dumbest shit ever. people aren’t buying this for a difference in quality or a performance boost, they’re buying it cuz it’s made out of plastic even if it is just a white lie. pointless video, slightly disappointed.
Dude said I thought it was gonna be couple hundred dollars more? Seriously? Normal UB’s cost 180. Any sneaker with couple hundred dollars on top no matter what it is is ridiculous to even think lol. But obviously complex staff aren’t really sneaker heads or know anything about ultra boost. Lol
They are both $180
20 dollars more? Naw I’m good
Fuck that idiot that says saving the environment is whack 3:23
Running out of ideas lol
Oh wow, they can read… How can you work there and have the Parley off the radar? Fake news.
I’ve personally got a pair and prefer it over the regular much more even though the primeknit isn’t as soft
Recycling material seems like THEY'RE saving money on their costs and yet they're still using the same process in a factory that puts out emissions am i not right?
What a shitty and pointless video
why would you pay more for a shoe made of recycled plastic tho lmao. I'd rather get my $180 Ultraboost's rather than my $220 recycled Ultraboosts
I got the ocean blue ultra boosts for my birthday and they're the best shoes I have
Adidas just pulls at some people's heart strings for marketing. Adidas uses trash from the ocean. Doesn't that make the sneaker cheaper to make? Then they charge us more? SMH
Lmao they are literally trash
I have parleys but not to help the environment the white colour way is just peng
Do you believe the hype? "Shit is whack boi DEAD
parley UB is just a gimmick and publicity. adidas make people think they are helping the environment but makes them in small number while making huge number of other huge
