Nike’s newest collection of classics aims to lessen environmental impact

We’ve only got one Planet Earth, and we’ve got to look after it.

That’s the driving mentality between Nike’s long-lived push for sustainability in its footwear production.

This year has been a big one for the Swoosh in terms of unveiling product designed to lessen impact on the environment. We’ve already seen the futuristic Space Hippie line as well as the Air VaporMax 2020 Flyknit, which is made from at least 50 percent recycled materials in each shoe.

But it isn’t just new silhouettes that are getting the planet-conscious treatment. Now some of your old favorites have been constructed in environmentally mindful ways, and you can cop them at on 9/20 with the arrival of the Nike Sportswear Recycled Canvas collection.

You can get your feet in a range of Nike classics made from at least 20 percent recycled materials, including Nike Air Force 1 ’07, Nike Air Max 90, Nike Air Max 95, Nike Daybreak-Type and Nike Cortez.

There’s also a range of clothing built with the same environmentally conscious mindset. You can cop shirts, hoodies, crewneck sweaters, jackets and pants alongside your favorite kicks.

A pair of new Space Hippie 04 colorways, pictured below, are also dropping 9/20.
