Nike strives for a CO2 neutral and waste free production process to protect the future of sport. That's why nowadays they make a lot of recycled sneakers. Recently we saw a new Nike Air Max 90 M2Z2 appear with recycled wool. The silhouette appears in an 'Electric Green' colorway.
Nike have also emphasised sustainability through the creation of innovative silhouettes such as the Space Hippie. It uses Flyknit yarn that is made from 85-90% recycled materials. Nike has a project called 'Move to Zero' that aims to reduce CO2 emissions with Nike by 30% by 2030. Today, not only are some of their sneakers made from recycled materials, but also garments, playgrounds and running tracks.
Nike Air Max 90 M2Z2 'Electric Green' | DD0383-001
When we pay attention to the upper part of the sneaker we see a wintery colour combination of 'Black, Electric Green, Smoke Grey and Light Bone'. You see the base made from a black textile, and over this you can find overlapping layers of leather. The 'Electric Green' colour can be found on the lower eyestays. Just like the fence around the Air Unit on the midsole. Note the stitching under the Swoosh on the sides which has also been given this bright colour. On the tongue, the heel and the Swooshes come in recycled wool. To finish it off, there is a midsole under the top in a 'Light Bone' colour and a speckled rubber outsole.
