Move to Zero: Nike’s sustainable sneaker family expands


With its “zero carbon, zero waste” objective, Nike continues to make its contribution to an ever more ecological future fashion. After the Nike Space Hippie range with multiple variations of the Jordan Brand Crater, the brand with the swoosh is now revisiting its classics such as the Air Force 1, the Blazer mid 77, the Waffle One or the Crater Impact.

In line with their sustainable development policy to transform waste into footwear for a lighter footprint, Nike is asserting itself through more and more models. One example is the latest collaboration between the Oregon-based brand and pop star Billie Eilish, which will be released on 30 September. And it goes without saying that a gateway like the coveted collaborations or the transformations of bestsellers will have every chance of seducing sneakerheads.

This is how some iconic models are reinvented under the prism of the Move to Zero programme. The Nike Air Force 1 Crater is made of at least 20% recycled materials. With transparent material mixes, Nike Grind rubber on the outsole and a speckled Crater foam midsole, the OG model has a definite futuristic feel. On the other hand, the Blazer Mid 77 features a recycled synthetic and suede design. The side swoosh takes on grained leather while a translucent icy sole and a multi-coloured Crater outsole complete the design.

Finally, Nike tackled the Waffle One Crater model, the successful silhouette carried by its similarities to the Nike LDWaffle x Sacai or the Nike Crater Impact. Both pairs in turn feature recycled materials such as the famous speckled sole as well as a futuristic design.

The Nike Move to Zero collection is already available on the Courir website.
