Nike‘s Move to Zero efforts have become more pronounced in recent months with releases like the Space Hippie line, and now Jordan Brand is joining the fray with its own sustainable footwear offering: a “Crater” collection. Serving up an Air Jordan 1 High Zoom plus new Crater and Crater Slide silhouettes, the “Crater” collection embraces circular design principles and makes heavy use of leftover manufacturing waste.

All three silhouettes present a common black and white color scheme, accented by pops of “Varsity Red” and featuring colorful flecks on their uppers. These uppers are built from a canvas-style material, and each uses reinforcements constructed of mechanically recycled polyester or nylon. There’s unique pops of flair to be had on all three as well: the Zoom-equipped Air Jordan 1 High boasts a synthetic suede build, exposed foam on its collar and jagged stitch detailing, the Crater uses an Air Footscape-style asymmetrical lacing system with multiple nylon anchors and the Suicoke-like Crater Slide uses traditional velcro straps atop its large sheath.

Each style also incorporates recycled NikeGrind foam in its flecked midsole, ensuring a thoughtful build from top to bottom. The Crater itself also adds a new CraterFoam cushioning setup, a blend of other Nike foams that’s partially crafted from leftover rubber.

The Jordan Brand “Crater” collection will roll out on the Nike webstore this fall. Retail prices have yet to be announced.

Moving from sustainability to skateboarding, Nike SB has announced an official release date for its highly anticipated SB Dunk Low “Grateful Dead” capsule.
