Nike Debuts Sustainable Performance Shoe, Air Zoom Alphafly Next Nature
Arriving as part of the Swoosh’s “Move to Zero” initiative.
Continuing its sustainability efforts through the “Move to Zero” project, Nike has unveiled its most eco-friendly performance shoe to date. Dubbed Air Zoom Alphafly Next Nature, the innovative sneaker is crafted to provide the same benefits as the sportswear giant’s NEXT% line.
In terms of design, the silhouette dons a gray knit upper and a pink tongue, while hits of orange are seen on the heel and laterals. At least 50% of the marathon shoe is made out of recycled materials, with the labels and laces using 100% recycled polyester and the ZoomX sock liner using 100% recycled PEBA. The upper is constructed with Nike Flyprint, which is a 3D printed textile with at least 20% recycled TPU. The kicks are complete with a ZoomX midsole made of at least 70% recycled foam. Overall, Nike is reducing production waste through pattern efficiency and recycling material scrap.
