Nike Space Hippie
Latest Nike Space Hippie News
The Nike Space Hippie Collection is the sportswear giant's range of eco-friendly sneakers made entirely of scrap materials from the factory floor. In a bid to implement more sustainable practices in its supply chain and offset climate change, Nike constructed the Space Hippie from recycled fabrics as part of their Move to Zero initiative.
It aims to drastically reduce waste and consider the environmental impact of their production lines when creating new sneakers. Boasting Nike’s lowest carbon footprint score yet, the Space Hippie line gets its quirky moniker from the so-called space junk used to create the futuristic-looking shoes.
The Space Hippie uppers are constructed from Nike's Space Waste Yarn, while the sole unit is crafted from recycled Zoomx Foam and Crater Foam. It uses Nike Grind rubber combined with the foam for a lightweight feel and speckled look. Setting a new bar for sustainable innovation and responsible design, the unique texture of the Space Hippie is down to a special Flyknit variation made from plastic water bottles and discarded yarn scraps.
The Nike Space Hippie sneakers promise to deliver on its zero waste commitment by making more responsible material choices and the shoes already have the least carbon footprint of all the Nike trainers.
