Nike’s Move to Zero Initiative has been going well, putting the brand right at the forefront of the sustainable sneaker space. The out-there Space Hippie collection, and a slew of popular silhouettes reinvented using Crater Foam, has provided some genuine highlights. Now, after the recent ‘Community Garden’ release and this latest ‘Dark Grey’ edition, Team Swoosh have their sustainability sights set on the Dunk Low.
Under their SB label, Nike have officially debuted the Dunk Low E, with the ‘E’ standing for Eco, and provided us with those sweet release details.
Nike have doused the environmentally-friendly Dunk Low in a tonal mix of blue with pops of grey. If you saw Eric Koston’s video of him showing off his #teamearly status, then you may have noticed that the collar looks slightly different to what you’re used to – that’s because Nike have opted for stitching rather than a rolled edge. Other notable sustainable upgrades include a Nike Grind Rubber outsole, reused TPU for the Zoom unit, a tongue detail made from recycled polyester, and laces made using leftover yarn.
If you think of yourself as the sustainable skater-type, mark your calendar for October 17, and head down below to check out the retailers that are stocking pairs.
