Nike is set to drop its most sustainable collections yet throughout 2020

Words by Olivia Hart

For a better future.

Nike’s mission to go green in 2020 was announced at the Nike 2020 Forum, and the brand’s first move is to drop two new shoe silhouettes – the Space Hippie and the Nike Air Vapormax 2020 FK.

With a commitment to using waste materials and recyclable goods, Nike is moving towards a zero-waste future.

Dropping as a limited collection, Space Hippie will feature four different silhouettes. The shoes are made from a mix of scrap material off factory floors and crater foam tooling. Flyknit styles also feature yarns made of 85 per cent recycled plastic water bottles.

The Nike Air Vapormax 2020 FK silhouette uses a colourful mix of materials including polyester and recycled waste.

We can also expect a sportswear collection called Move to Zero, made almost entirely of recycled materials. These include recycled polyester and sustainable cotton, which uses less water and fewer chemicals than other cotton fibres.

The capsule includes several workout staples such as hoodies, T-shirts, joggers and shorts, as well as an unlined Windrunner jacket made from 100 per cent recycled polyester.

There’s also a selection of women’s pieces including dresses and shorts, which all feature at least 60 per cent organic fabrics.

Three Space Hippie designs will drop sometime this autumn, with the fourth following in winter. No word yet on when to expect the other releases.
