Nike trumpets its four-silhouette Space Hippie line as “trash,” which it is: each pair is partially constructed from recycled materials. Though the quartet of sneakers — the Space Hippie 01, Space Hippie 02, Space Hippie 03 and Space Hippie 04 — are indeed trash in a literal sense, each is far from trash in a figurative sense. All four are simultaneously stylish and sustainable, and the latest pair to join the ranks is the Space Hippie 04 in a women’s “Photon Dust” makeup.

Uppers are made of a light tan knit material called “Space Waste Yarn,” which uses roughly 75% recycled polyester material produced from PET bottles, T-shirts, and thread waste. Rainbow-like details grace the large lateral quarter Swoosh, the small Swoosh on the medial toebox, the seam on the medial quarter, each side’s top eyelet and the extended heel tab’s branding. Asymmetrical laces and “04” tongue tags complete the upper, while insoles offer a neon green hue and a classic Nike Sportswear “Sunburst” logo. Down below, light blue midsoles are built from Nike’s sustainable Crater Foam to complete the look.

The Nike Space Hippie 04 “Photon Dust” will release via Nike SNKRS Japan on April 16. Its MSRP is set at $130 USD.
