The Space Hippie product line officially became the flagship of Nike's sustainable product fleet in 2020. Since the first drop, which included a total of 4 silhouettes 01, 02, 03, and 04, the Nike Space Hippie term has become a popular concept associated with the word sustainability, as we refer to environmentally friendly products.
This is mainly due to the recycled materials used to make the sneakers. Across the individual Nike Space Hippie models, their share ranges between 25 and 50 percent. The most recycled materials are contained in the sole made of Nike Crater foam and the upper made of specially modified Flyknit material.
While Nike's journey to zero carbon footprint, which the company is committed to with the Move To Zero project, is still long, projects like the Nike Space Hippie show that it's definitely not a utopia.
Upper - Textile - is a lightweight material, which is offered in a very wide color scale and is mainly used for summer footwear.
Midsole - Polyurethane foam - is one of the best thermal insulators, is lightweight, tough and windproof.
Sole - Rubber - a material that is very easy to maintain and you will appreciate it especially in rainy weather.
