This week we’re taking a closer look at all that goes into producing one of Nike’s most recent eco-friendly offerings, the Women’s Space Hippie 04 – Lemon Venom.
With the sneaker having been produced from at least 25% of recycled materials, the story of Space Hippie is indeed an embodiment of the notion of transformed trash. As the sneaker with the lowest carbon footprint within the eco-friendly collection, the Women’s Space Hippie 04 – Lemon Venom boasts impressive features such as Space Waste Yarn uppers that include 85% recycled polyester, made from recycled t-shirts, plastic bottles and yarn scraps. Additionally a midsole made of a plump Crater Foam fuses Nike grind with a combination of foams for that added stability and unique sense of style. As for the interesting colourway choice, the Space Hippie kicks incorporate and energizing combination of muted pink and Lemon Venom to add that burst of colour.
And it’s not just the shoes that are keeping it eco-friendly as Nike continues to carry on with the sustainability approach right through to the packaging. The sportswear giant ditched the traditional double box to instead distribute the Space Hippie sneakers in a single box produced entirely from re-purposed material and printed onto using a plant-based ink.
With a collection like this, Nike is certainly positioning itself as a brand for the future of which it would love for you to be a part of. So make sure to check out these kicks which are retailing for R 2,399.95 on the Nike website.
