We're calling it now - ocean-trash sneakers will be the hottest footwear trend come 2016.

Adidas has created a prototype for a sustainable new shoe made almost entirely from recycled garbage pulled from the ocean, German apparel giant announced on Monday.

The upper shoe is made entirely of yarns and filaments reclaimed from illegal deep-sea gillnets and other ocean waste, while the base is made from sustainable cushioning material.

The new kicks are the first to come out of Adidas' recent partnership with Parley for the Oceans, an organization that aims to end pollution of the world's oceans.

The company will begin incorporating recycled plastic into its shoes by early next year. So, until then, you'll have to get by without wearing trash on your feet.

Recycled ocean trash sneakers could be the new Air Jordans.
