Nike Make ‘Move to Zero’ with Recycled Canvas CollectionRelease: 16 September 2020
Debuting at the start of 2020, the Space Hippie collection spearheaded Nike’s ‘Move to Zero’ mantra, introducing new models that leave the lowest carbon footprint in the brand’s history. With each shoe made from approximately 25-50 per cent recycled trash, it was only a matter of time before the ground-breaking concept made it to Beaverton’s most beloved silhouettes. Enter the all-new ‘Recycled Canvas’ collection, where sustainable innovations meet the icons of the Nike lineup.
As the nickname suggests, each pair comes with an upper constructed entirely of recycled canvas, elevated further with eco-friendly Flyleather Swooshes and heel tabs, each made from 50 per cent recycled natural leather fibres. Additionally, the tongues and shoe strings also make use of recycled materials.
The eco-friendly collective sees two anniversary models – the Air Max 95 and Air Max 90 – join the Daybreak Type, Cortez, and Air Force 1 Low. The mix of old and new is blessed with seriously wearable grey uppers, as each model is elevated via subtle contrasting accents for a classy yet understated aesthetic. Additionally, the Daybreak and Cortez level things up in the sustainability stakes, with out-of-this-world Crater Foam soles down below.
