NIKE, Inc. has been cognizant of its environmental impact for decades, but the last handful of year has seen the company move towards a more sustainable operation. One such way that it’s been “going green” is through Nike Grind, a material made up of recycled manufacturing floor scraps. The up-cycled component recently appeared on a colorful Air Jordan 1 Mid for kids.
Construction across the upper resembles standard pairs of the iconic silhouette, with leather panels appearing from forefoot to heel. Hits of light blue, green, and gold divvy up real estate, although the sky-reminiscent color takes over the base layer. Swooshes on the sidewalls, then, deviate in a speckled grey finish that debuted via the Nike Space Hippie series; outsoles follow suit with their semi-translucence. All together, the color scheme and recycled nature further expand the Air Jordan 1‘s legacy for the next 38 years.
