The first sustainable basketball shoe ever - made of recycled materials. Basketball’s omnipresence is not only limited to athletics. It casts an extremely wide net over fashion, music and pretty much every other cultural aspect of humanity. And with Nike having the goals of improving athletes, while simultaneously improving the planet, basketball was the only logical choice. Performance-wise, The shoe needs to be durable for when they’re banging down low. And it needs to be lightweight and comfortable for when they beat their opponent off the dribble.
