Nike Releases Shoe Made From Manufacturing Waste
Nike has released the Nike Trash Talk, a basketball shoe made from manufacturing waste. The Nike Trash Talk is modeled after the shoe of Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash and meets Nike’s Considered design standards:
– The upper is pieced together from leather and synthetic leather waste from the factory floor using zig-zag stitching.
– The mid-sole uses scrap-ground foam from factory production
– The outsole uses environmentally-preferred rubber and incorporates Nike Grind material from footwear outsole manufacturing waste.
– The Phoenix Suns’ colorways will have shoe laces and sockliners which use environmentally-preferred materials and will be packaged in a fully recycled cardboard shoe box.
Earlier this year, Nike designed its Air Jordan XX3 shoe to be environmentally correct.
