The Nike Air Max 95 ‘Recycled Wool’ trainer features recycled wool uppers & recycled sneaker soles as part of Nike’s “Move to Zero” campaign.
It was no surprise really to hear that David Attenborough broke the Instagram record time for reaching 1 million followers. He’s not some wannabe influencer, or ‘content creator’ trying to make a quick buck. Alongside the amazing Greta Thunberg he’s probably one of the most influential people to raise awareness of the damage we have already done to our planet. Whether you choose to believe it or not, Global Warming is real, it’s happening right now and it’s hopefully still not too late to, at the very least, slow the process down. As part of Nike’s latest “Move to Zero” campaign, we are now treated to another sustainable sneaker to kick off 2021 with the Nike Air Max 95 ‘Recycled Wool’ trainer.
Following on from the success of the likes of the Recycled Pack & the Recycled Canvas Pack which both dropped towards the end of 2020, we are once again treated to another recycled Air Max drop. This time it’s the mid 90s Sergio Lozano silhouette that gets the sustainable treatment with recycled wool uppers & other recycled materials such as Grind Rubber which utilises old sole units. Boasting 20% recycled materials in total, it’s great to see the “Move to Zero” set the standard for other sneaker releases.
Other highlights include a speckled outsole with contrasting stitching, mini swooshes & airbags in ‘electric green’ for a truly one of a kind finish. The Nike Air Max 95 ‘Recycled Wool’ trainer will be launching from a selection of retailers we work on Thursday 7th January 2021.
