Out now! The Nike Air Force 1 'Desert Camo' is made of recycled material

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.

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.

The Nike Air Force 1 Low 'Desert Camo' is now available at Nike for €110,-. Check out the images below and keep an eye on our release calendar to stay up to date with the latest sneaker releases.
