Lower Your Carbon Footprint, Literally

Setting a new standard for sneaker sustainability, Nike’s cheekily named Space Hippie line is made mostly of scrap material from other products, including knitted uppers made from water bottles, T-shirts, and yarn snips, and foam soles made from trimmings from less enlightened shoes.
