A Sustainable Nike Dunk Low Scrap Dress Up Grey Haze
In addition to company-level efforts, Cadysneaker “return to zero” initiative has penetrated into product production, creating partially recycled sports shoes, such as the “low dunk waste” in the newly launched Nike “Grey Haze” (Grey Haze) (Dunk Low Scrap). Although this is not the only sustainable option, the upcoming pair are obsessed with mix-and-match arrangements, using leftover materials throughout the Swoosh manufacturing floor. Therefore, the latest design of Peter Moore’s iconic Nike Dunk uses non-traditional components and tailoring of the entire cover. First, the smooth leather base is replaced by a breathable mesh, while suede strips of different shapes and sizes are sandwiched between the lightweight material and the tumbling leather covering. More durable panels appear in common places-forefoot, along the tongue, around the heel-but have jagged, angled edges. “Oil Green” (Oil Green), “Phantom” (Phantom) and “Light Bone” (Light Bone) these three popular songs with different styles also echo the assembling style of this sneaker.
As early as September, the rumors about Off-White x New Air Force 1 Mid quickly changed from one title to another. In the past week, with the release of the white color scheme, the cooperation was finally confirmed. Today, shortly after, the black candidate did the same thing, the first time it appeared because of a leaked sneaker. Like its lighter, these two echo many of Virgil Abloh’s signature themes. For example, the inner side is decorated with Helvetica, and a second lace unit is added to the shoe. The latter, in contrast to its white lace, reflects the additional mold attached to the tool below through a palette of multi-color lace locks. More importantly, this sole has been distorted beyond its usual appearance, although it is difficult to see due to the “Three Blacks” plan.
Soon after announcing the “return to zero” plan, 2021Shoes launched several products with the concept of sustainable development. Among these products, there are several products under the banner of “Next Nature” (Next Nature) to choose from, including a “White/University Blue” Nike (Nike) mid-77 Blazer. Although the color scheme of Swoosh is not new to its first basketball-specific design, its appearance with the partially recycled Next Nature is fresh. Similar to the most iconic Nike Blazer Mid series in the past, this newly launched shoe is based on smooth synthetic leather, laying the foundation for the “University Blue” upper design. The swoosh on the side, the trademark and the underlay on the tongue label are all selected tones related to the University of North Carolina. The suede-reinforced front and rear soles have a slightly lighter shade than usual, while the sole unit indulges in the largest deviation from the standard upper-middle contour. The subtle spots on the midsole indicate that the lower half of this sneaker uses upgraded materials, and the spin wheel logo on the sock lining also confirms this, which is the hallmark of the series.
