Nike is pushing the envelope when it comes to their innovations in performance and we will continue to see more and more especially in the upcoming 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
While performance is the bread and butter of Nike’s innovations, it is the sustainable lifestyle products that garner much attention as we see that with the new Space Hippie collection. Here we have four models constructed of scrap materials from factory floors. This method of sustainable productions results in Nike’s lowest carbon footprint score to date.
At least 85% of each Space Hippie shoe is constructed from a special Flyknit variation called rPoly. This material is made from recycled plastic bottles, t-shirt and yarn scraps with grey and blue tints featured on the upper with orange accents.
