Nike Air Force 1 Crater: Marrying style with sustainability

Nike is taking sustainability a little more seriously by releasing a series of iterations using recycled materials. Since its release in 1982, Nike now holds a wide range of Nike Air Force 1 variations in their arsenal. And to jazz it up, Nike added another exciting version of the AF1, this time a sustainable one.

The latest in their 'Move to Zero' mission, the brand launched the Nike Air Force 1 Crater. This re-imagined version features a clean and minimal upper added with sustainable elements to several details.  

What to expect?

The Nike Air Force 1 Crater kept the OG profile - low-cut, clean, and sleek. And to make it more exciting, Nike applied an eco-friendly makeover:

  • The toe box has a translucent fabric that partially reveals the scrap materials underneath it to give a recycled yet classy look. 
  • It also displays stitched webbing accents and woven tongue label to enhance that reclaimed yet clean look.
  • Found on the heel and toe is the unique speckled rubber outsole made of 15% Nike Grind rubber morsel.
  • Nike used the speckled Crater foam midsole composed of 11% Nike Grind rubber and foam that gives a perfect springiness to your steps.
