Nike has offered a brand new iteration of its Space Hippie 04, one of the most eco-friendly silhouettes from the label’s catalog. After unveiling its “Volt” colorway from back in July, the American footwear giant has opted for a sleek “Astronomy Blue” this time around.

The entire shoe is made from at least 25 percent recycled material by weight, and it’s the lightest silhouette within the Space Hippie line, also with the lowest carbon footprint. Boasting breathable “Space Waste Yarn,” the shoe’s uppers are made from 85 percent recycled polyester that’s been sourced from plastic bottles, T-shirts and yarn scraps. A crisp white tag is placed at the top of the sneaker, complemented by a set of ecru-toned laces, while the sidewalls are etched with an intricately woven Swoosh that resembles that of traditional Japanese sashiko weave. All of these features rest atop a light blue Crater Foam midsole that’s been engineered for optimal cushioning and support. The shoe also comes with a shoebox made from re-purposed materials, detailed with plant-based ink.

Nike’s Space Hippie 04 “Astronomy Blue” will be available on September 23, 10 p.m. EDT on the label’s website for $130 USD.

In case you missed it, SHABBAAAAA has teamed up with Nike by You for a Jamaica-inspired Air Max 90.
