Whether Nike sneakers, a cashmere sweater or an exclusive leather bag. There is a lot of waste in the production of fashion. All individual parts of a piece are usually cut from large sheets of material, in order to then be sewn or glued together. What remains is a considerable amount of rest, which is usually too small to be reused.

Nike is one of the largest players in the sneaker business and is aware of its responsibility towards the environment. So the goal has long been to manufacture products that have the lowest possible carbon footprint. The proof that this can be done is the latest coup from Nike: the “Space Hippie”.

The auction house Sotheby's said that this was a record value for sneakers.

Nike “Space Hippie”: The sneaker made of garbage

Various clips and teasers have been circulating on the Internet for months. Now the time has finally come and Nike presents the four finished designs of the “Space Hippie” series. There are not only two low and one mid-top version, but also a boot sneaker that goes over the ankles. The characteristic design feature of all sneakers is the color: in addition to accents and Nike Swoosh in neon orange, all four models use the same range of warm gray, light mud and baby blue.

The general look is very futuristic and will absolutely meet the taste of customers. And even though the fabric and outsole might suggest that this is not a regular sneaker, its history and content are more amazing than expected.

Depending on the model, up to 90% (weight) of the entire Nike sneaker from recycled materials. The Flyknit fabric alone consists entirely of recycled plastic bottles, old T-shirts and yarn waste. Another good news: fans of the Nike “Space Hippie” don't have to wait long. The sneakers with the names “01”, “02”, “03” and “04” will shortly be available, depending on the model, at a price of 130 euros to 180 euros Euro will be available on the Nike app “SNEAKRS” and at selected sneaker shops. The deadline is June 11.

The future of Nike: “High performance, low impact”

But to launch four sneakers and continue with the day-to-day business as before, ultimately does nothing, Nike knows that and has been screwing on the sustainability of the products, the company and especially the production for years. That's why we spoke to Noah Murphy-Reinhertz (Sustainability Design Lead).

Are Birkenstocks Cool? Jason Momoa Just Ended the Debate.

  Are Birkenstocks Cool? Jason Momoa Just Ended the Debate. When the modern style icon shares a fashion opinion, you listen.When it comes to experimenting with style choices, every man has his limits. Trends like fanny packs, clunky dad sneakers, and rompers for men—that one still has us reeling—are embraced by some and scoffed at by most. Truth is, we men know what we like, and in terms of style, we know what’s a safe bet.

GQ: How do you want to change the production of sneakers in the future?

Noah Murphy-Reinhertz: The most important thing is to change the production methods and machines so that no more waste is produced and we can switch flexibly between different designs. The goal is that we can both react immediately to increased demand and at the same time quickly try out new ideas.

When it comes to sustainability, we can only win if we all win.

What is the biggest challenge when you develop new materials?

There are an incredible number of laboratories and experts who develop terrific new materials. But before we make a shoe out of it and show it to everyone, it takes years before it actually goes on sale and can influence the market. Real breakthroughs in the industry unfortunately take time.

How do you deal responsibly with natural resources?

As far as natural resources are concerned, we only want to work with partners who are experts in the field of sustainability. For example, “Ocean Conservancy”: An association that works with us to ensure that there are no transport routes through the Arctic Ocean. These routes damage the environment massively and drive climate change ever faster. Or our partnership with the “Better Cotton Initiative”: By 2025 we have committed ourselves to source 100% of our cotton only from the best and most sustainable sources. When it comes to sustainability, we can only win if we all win.
