LA-based designer and artist Steve Harrington is set to team up with Nike for Earth Day 2019. The collection brings new earthy designs to three models: the Nike Air Force 1, Nike Blazer Low, and the Nike Cortez.

Nike has dedicated a lot of time and effort to incorporate sustainability into their models. The goal is to preserve the Earth for as long as possible. Adding technology and taking different measures, many sneaker brands are looking to do their part and reuse materials or design shoes with new innovative materials that help the environment. A new material that Nike will use on this collection is Flyleather. Nike Flyleather is a material that is engineered with 50% reclaimed leather fibers. In addition to recycling material that would find itself in landfills the production process also uses less water than usual. The unconventional operation also brings forth a leather that is 40% lighter and 5x more durable than conventional leather, a win-win.

Steve Harrington definitely had his way with every silhouette. Combining a specific graphic to each individual model allows each to shine in their own way. All three are accompanied with an all-white Flyleather but don separate graphics that are highlighted with purple and green tones. The Nike Air Force 1 has a character holding the Earth on it’s back, also most notably the left and right shoe contain different color outsoles as the right is green and the left is purple. The LA themed Nike Cortez dons the same character as the Air Force 1 but this time it is hugging the Earth. Lastly, the Nike Blazer Low contains the Earth walking happily all while wearing Nikes himself. Each silhouette has its own story attached to it but all hint at everyone doing their part to take care of the Earth.


The pack of three is set to become available on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2019 at select retailers and Each containing their own price, the lowest is set for $80 while the highest is at $100. Furthermore, the cheap retail with the story behind the collection will lead it to be a huge hit among many.
