Speaking about the Cosmic Unity, Senior Creative Director for Performance Footwear at Nike Ross Klein said, “We asked ourselves a question that is guiding our process into the future: Can a product that makes the world better also make an athlete better? We wanted to create a synergy between making the world better by what we do, but also leave an impact for athletes so that they can perform at a higher level.”
The first Cosmic Unity sneaker — a “Green Glow” colorway — will release via the Nike web store on February 26. Releases in “Amalgam” and a “Space Hippy” design will follow on March 7 and March 12 respectively.
