Nike’s renowned for its avid championing of environmental salvation and waste reduction. In prep of the pending 2020 Olympics – which’ll now be postponed thanks to covid – Nike’s dropping a fresh collection that embodies this worldly imperative! In effect, utilizing what would’ve been trash to construct a collection of striking new space-age silhouettes! Featured, Nike Space Hippie Pack incoming this Thursday!
The collection, Space Hippie, consists of four unique sneakers – named Space ‘Hippie 01‘, ‘Space Hippie 02‘, ‘Space Hippie 03‘, and ‘Space Hippie 04‘ – and boasts the lowest carbon footprint score for Nike sneakers to date! The unspecific, numbered names feed into the pack’s raw, minimalist aesthetic – and give off a militant impression. Each silhouette’s constructed from Nike’s cutting room floor scraps, and brags an impressive array of textured materials – including recycled ZoomX foam and rubber, and recycled tee yarns. The “Crater Foam” sole uses 15% Nike Grind rubber in conjunction with the recycled ZoomX foam or that lightweight feel – plus a natural, weathered look.
The collection includes a low-top, mid, and high-top for men, and one women’s exclusive low-top. Take a closer look at each silhouette below..
The Nike ‘Space Hippie 01‘ Grey Crimson gives off a real space-age vibe, and plays into the pack’s Move to Zero imperative. The uppers are made from Flyknit and the grey tonal palette is animated by the side swoosh logo. The pull tabs also boost the silhouette and manifest a stark, military aesthetic. That utility feel’s even further accentuated through the sneaker’s deep treads!
The Nike ‘Space Hippie 02‘ Grey Crimson also brags Flyknit uppers for that light but sturdy construction, and the sock-like theme amplifies the futuristic feel! The grey theme is subtle and sleek, and the large orange swoosh logo adds a pop of colour to the minimalistic tone. The pull tabs also make for swift and easy access! The deep tread offers premium comfort – while feeding into that military aesthetic we know you love!
This sneaker’s definitely the most high-tech looking silhouette in the pack – with the combined sock fit and high-spec lacing system. The ‘Space Hippie 03‘ showcases the same cool, grey theme evidenced in the rest of the capsule, again with those vibrant orange accents! It’s the lacing system that really steps up this construction’s industrial feel! So if you want to stand out, be sure to add this to your rotation!
The ‘Space Hippie 04‘ comes in two smooth and subtle colourways: Grey Crimson and Grey Volt.
Grey Volt’s uppers again brag that Flyknit fabric – in conjunction with a low-key lacing system and canvas strap. But this time, the Swoosh logo’s etched in a cool, lime green – that’ll slot nicely into your summer rotation FYI. The Grey Crimson brags the same construction, while possessing an icy, grey palette – boosted by the vibrant orange swoosh!
The Nike Space Hippie Pack is set to release Thursday 8AM on Nike’s Sneakers app, and the Hippie 04’s will be available at selected retailers via raffle competitions. Stay tuned with us for your best chance to cop!
