The Hippies are Coming! *UPDATE*
The Hippies are coming!
During this year’s innovation summit, Nike unveiled the Space Hippie, the brand’s latest footwear collection using transformed factory and post-consumer waste. The collection also is part of the brand’s Move to Zero initiative, as Nike focuses on lowering their carbon footprint.
The initial collection features four silhouettes – aptly named Space Hippie 01 through 04 – all are new designs that are manufactured with 85 to 90% recycled polyester ‘Space Waste Yarn’, recycled ZoomX foam (to provide that cushy, responsive footbed), and Crater Foam (a blend of standard Nike foams and Nike Grind Rubber). Some pairs have traditional laces while others take on the FastFit/FlyEase combo that resulted to unique designs and silhouettes.
The Nike Space Hippie 01, 02, 03 and 04 are set to release on June 11 via SNKRS and SNEAKERS apps, as well as select global Nike doors and retailers.
*UPDATE* – The Space Hippie will be available via nike.com/ph SNKRS. Both the Space Hippie 01 and 04 retail for Php 6,745, while the Space Hippie 02 goes for Php 7,645 and Php 8,995 for the Space Hippie 03. The collection drops on June 11. A Space Hippie Tee is also available for Php 1,895.
