As new seasons are on the horizon, Nike takes the opportunity to preview its sustainable footwear for Summer 2019. The selection of upcoming sneakers demonstrates new ways to approach color, construction and material innovation.
Nike kicks off its Summer 2019 sustainable footwear by introducing the “Plant Color” collection. Utilizing plant-based dye, the capsule — consisting of the Air Max 95 and the Blazer Low — draws inspiration from alternative ways to make color.
Next, the brand’s “Flyleather Earth Day” pack features one of Nike’s most sustainable materials in Flyleather, paired with artist Steve Harrington’s signature aesthetic. The thematic Air Force 1, Blazer Low and Cortez are designed to give the wearer a more profound appreciation for the planet.
Nike’s VaporMax 2 Random then makes use of excess Flyknit yarn, that would have previously been shipped to the landfill, to deliver a truly one-of-a-kind Air Max.
Scan through the gallery above for a glimpse at Nike’s sustainable Summer 2019 sneakers, which will release throughout the summer.
