Sportswear brands across the globe have made it a point to emphasize sustainability both when producing and marketing products, one being Nike whom has positioned its ongoing “Move to Zero” campaign to the forefront. This has been often seen through the company’s footwear offerings as a substantial amount of them have incorporated NikeGrind — a material that comes from recycled scraps. And the latest product to be engineered with this is the Air Jordan 1 Low “Crater” which has just emerged via official imagery.

The base layer of these lifestyle sneakers contrast between two shades of gray. A charcoal-esque hue covers the toe boxes, collars and quarter panels while a lighter shade lands on the suede overlays. The former is also decorated with multi-colored threading and sits adjacent to Swooshes that are filled with NikeGrind scraps, exposed blue stitches that zig-zag over the mid-foot and heels as well as raised ball-and-wings logos on the heels. If you transition downwards, you’ll notice that the scrappy aesthetic has also been applied the midsoles and the treading, the former of which is slightly less visible given that its backdrop is pure white.

Check out a closer look above and note that retailers like size? are slated to drop these soon for £105 (approx. $144 USD).

In case you missed it, on-foot pictures of Air Jordan 1 Element “GORE-TEX” have popped up.
