Nike’s push for sustainability in their products is starting to show. When browsing their site, nearly every product is tagged with a ‘Recycled materials” marker. But this week, the Running team unveiled their most sustainable shoe yet.
Nike’s Move to Zero campaign has taken over their manufacturing processes, incorporating recycled materials into nearly every product on their shelves in the last year. However, if you know Nike, you know they are always innovating, pushing their discoveries to new heights and testing the absolute limits of materials. So, it should come as no surprise that while Nike has slowly been working recycled goods back into its product, we fully expected Nike’s R&D teams to be hard at worker on pushing that envelope even further. This week, they unveiled their latest creation in the name of sustainability, the Air ZoomX AlphaFly Next Nature, a top-of-the-line performance shoe constructed from at least 50% recycled materials by weight. From the 70% recycled foam midsole to the Flyprint upper, the Swoosh’s new 3D-printed textile material, every piece of this AlphaFly features more sustainable materials than any other Nike shoe currently out there.
NIKE AIR ZOOMX ALPHAFLY NEXT NATURE RELEASE INFORMATION
Nike’s latest innovation in sustainable sneakers, the Air Zoom AlphaFly Next Nature, was unveiled earlier this week as a prototype of the Swoosh’s next steps in reducing their carbon footprint. However, the shoes have not yet been given an official release date, which we may not see for a long time given the nature of this shoe. Constructed of 50% recycled materials by weight, the AlphaFly Next Nature will likely release exclusively from Nike, with a hefty price tag of at least $300.
