The Nike Space Hippie sneakers have returned for 2021, emerging in new colorways crafted from recycled and waste materials. This week, we have an early look at the new “Obsidian” & “Melon Tint” colorways, coming soon.

Nike’s Space Hippie 01 is emerging as the premier silhouette from the brand’s collection of sneakers made entirely from recycled materials. Launched last Summer, the Space Hippie project transforms Nike’s factory waste into entirely new textiles, and then, footwear. Available in four different numbered models, the primary pair of this branch of the Move to Zero series is clearly the 01 Space Hippie, likely due to its standardized shape and lacing system. This week, the Space Hippie 01 has emerged in two new colorways for the upcoming Spring and Summer months, dressing the sleek silhouette in two contrasting colorways. The first pits the Space Hippie’s knit upper in a dark “Obsidian” blue tone, mixing in lighter shades for the Swoosh, as well as adding colorful accents in orange and forest green to the lacing system and heel tabs. The second pair is much lighter in color, featuring a simple grey upper with bright pink accents, and a “Melon Tint” midsole to round out the look.


Nike’s latest colorways of the recycled materials Space Hippie 01 has not yet been announced for release, though they are expected to launch sometime in the coming weeks. The smooth “Obsidian” and bright “Melon Tint” looks will likely be available from both Nike and select retailers, retaining the usual price tag of $130.
