Nike is always innovating for the future. Whether that means their laceless Adapt technology or the recycled leather Flyleather, the Swoosh is constantly trying to help the planet. This Summer, those ideas come full circle with the new Sustainability Collection.
Nike has spent a significant amount of time and dollars creating a wide selection of sustainable products in recent years. This month, the Swoosh has announced an even wider release than any of their previous innovations, spread across a variety of shoes using similar sustainable technologies. First up is a bright new look for the Air Vapormax Flyknit. Titled the “Random” colorway, this look combines a multitude of unused and scrap Flyknit yarns, mixing them all together for one extremely eye-catching look.
Next up in Nike’s Summer 2019 Sustainability collection is a triple pack of Flyleather constructed Nike classics, each with their own unique Steve Harrington graphics for Earth Day. This marks one of the first widespread releases of Nike’s Flyleather material, which is created using leftover leather fibers from their manufacturing process, remolded together without the use of glue. Finally, Nike has taken the Air Max 95 and Blazer Low and dyed them in a pastel palette of plant-based dyes.
Nike’s extensive new Sustainability collection was recently announced via the brand’s news stream and is said to release throughout Summer 2019. The various shoes of this project will likely retail between $100 and $200 based on their standard price tags, and release from both Nike and select retailers. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more information on where to score a pair.
