Space Hippie is an exploratory footwear collection inspired by life on Mars
—where materials are scarce and there is no resupply mission. Created
from scraps, or “space junk,” Space Hippie is the result of sustainable
practices meeting radical design.
In the spirit of Nike’s journey toward zero carbon and zero waste, Space Hippie’s Flyknit yarn is made from 85-90% recycled content, including plastic bottles, t-shirts and post-industrial scraps.
To provide comfort and convenience for the city “athlete” on-the-go, each of the Space Hippie silhouettes features unique fitting options such as traditional laces, Flyease & lace-less technology.
Crater Foam tooling in the sole uses about 12% Nike Grind rubber combined with foam materials for a more sustainable, lightweight and responsive feel during city exploration. The box itself is made of recycled materials & plant based ink. Check this drop when it releases Friday July 3rd at WishATL.
