First unveiled as part of the Nike Olympic preview in February and then brought to market over the course of the summer, the Nike Space Hippie line offers four sustainable, innovative styles, one of which — the Space Hippie 03 — is set to return in a “Healing Jade” colorway. While the general public has seen multiple iterations of other silhouettes from the line like the Space Hippie 01 and Space Hippie 04, the 03, undeniably the most technical of the bunch due to its FlyEase fit system, has largely remained in the shadows: the “Healing Jade” marks its first release since July’s “Volt” pack.

High-cut sock uppers are made almost entirely of a gray knit material called rPoly, a variation of Nike‘s Flyknit tech that’s constructed of recycled plastic bottles plus T-shirt and yarn scraps. This gray base is accented with volt stitching on the forefoot and midfoot, then white embroidery around the collar. A single volt/black Swoosh graces the toebox, and above this sits the signature FlyEase lacing system.

Using a two-part toggle construction that’s denoted with volt straps over the top of the foot and around the heel, the FlyEase system enables the wearer to tighten or loosen the high-tensile white wires that drop down from the throat onto the quarter’s lateral and medial anchor points. These anchor points are done up in a marbled blue, matching the branded tongue and heel tabs.

A finishing touch is provided by the “Healing Jade” midsole, which is made of recycled ZoomX foam scraps and combined with NikeGrind rubber, hence the multi-colored flecks. More NikeGrind appears in high-wear areas on the toe and heel to provide extra durability. The “Healing Jade” also comes packaged in a sustainable box.

Look for the Nike Space Hippie 03 “Healing Jade” to release on Nike SNKRS Korea come New Year’s Day, January 1. The MSRP is set at ₩219,000 KRW (approximately $198 USD). A US release will likely follow in later weeks.
