Jordan Brand will be releasing a brand new colorway of their Air Jordan 1 High Zoom. Not only is it a new colorway, it is also constructed in a very unique way.
This Air Jordan 1 Zoom High bridges Jordan heritage and the trash-transformed ethos. Applying circular design principles to a Jordan classic, the shoe is highlighted by some post-consumer speckled Nike Grind rubber in the foam outsole and incorporates recycled polyester (rPoly is created with recycled plastic bottles) in the synthetic suede upper, which gives the shoe timeless appeal, and its full-length Zoom Air cushioning adds responsive feel.
Part of the Jordan Brand Crater Collection, the collection presents a radical expression of how to design with sustainability in mind. Embracing circular design principles, specifically in using leftover manufacturing waste, the shoes draw aesthetic energy from raw material authenticity. The collection’s namesake Crater Foam is a blend of Nike foams with about 12 percent Nike Grind rubber from manufacturing waste. Uppers are made from a canvas-like material, with reinforcements and webbings built from 80 to 100 percent mechanically-recycled polyester and 100 percent recycled nylon, respectively.
Update (7/14/2020): This Air Jordan 1 High Zoom is said to be a part of the Jordan Brand Crater Collection, which presents a radical expression of how to design with sustainability in mind.
Update (5/27/2020): The Air Jordan 1 High Zoom Space Hippie will release on August 12th at select retailers and Nike.com for the retail price of $175.
