In recent years, Nike has been striving for a zero-carbon, zero-waste business. Therefore, in 2019, the Swoosh launched the Move-to-Zero project. With this project, Nike aims for a co2-neutral and waste-free production process in order to protect the future of Sport. One of the biggest collections Nike has released for the move-to-zero project is the Space Hippie Pack. The shoes in this pack are made almost entirely from recycled materials.
Now Nike released a playful colorway for the Air Force 1.
The Air Force 1 is a true icon in the sneaker world, but how did this legendary model get its name? In 1982 the Nike Air Force 1 was released for the first time, as a high top version. This was the first basketball shoe that used the Air technology. One year later, the low top version of the Air Force 1 was released. In 1984, Nike wanted to stop production of the Air Force 1, but due to enthusiastic Air Force 1 wearers and retailers from Baltimore, Nike continued production of the sneaker. Ten years later, we saw the release of the Air Force 1 Mid, which also marked the introduction of the Jewel Swoosh.
Nike Air Force 1 Low 'Desert Camo' | DD1175-001
If we look at the sole, we see that it has a brown colour with all kinds of little specks. This is because the sneaker is made of the Nike Grind material. This material consists of leftovers after a production process. A desert camo print can be found on the toebox and midfoot. This is combined with soft blue suede on the overlays. A mud-like overlay is then embroidered across the side of the heel and the Swoosh. Nike branding is only found on the tongue and neon green insole this time.
