  • Lightweight: Being light is one of the sneaker's most notable features.

2 reasons not to buy

  • Pricey: The Space Hippie 01 is pretty expensive despite using recycled materials.
  • Compressed cushioning: You do not get the same responsiveness from the insole's pure form, a critic mentions.

Bottom line

Nike gives you the concept of "one athlete's trash is another's treasure" with its Space Hippie line. With sustainability and innovation in mind, the Swoosh gives birth to the Space Hippie 01.

Although the low-top Space Hippie 01 has a one of a kind look, it is still unlike the 02 and 03 silhouettes that have a much more complicated look. It flaunts a straightforward design that lets wearers easily dress the shoe for their daily activities.

Nike Space Hippie 01: This is trash

The Swoosh's Space Hippie collection is a story of rubbish transformed. It is a pilot footwear collection inspired by life on Mars where materials are scarce and there is no resupply mission.

The Space Hippie 01 is one of the four Space Hippie silhouettes that is made from at least 50% recycled materials.

  • Upper - The upper of the Space Hippie 01 includes about 90% recycled plastic bottles, t-shirts, and yarn scraps
  • Midsole - Materials from recycled athletic footwear and surplus manufacturing scraps, also known as Nike Grind, are combined with a blend of foams for stability, unique aesthetic, and soft cushioning.
  • Insole - The soft insole is made of recycled foam, the Nike ZoomX, which is the lightest foam that gives more cushioning without the weight.
  • Shoebox - Nike ditches the double box and uses a single shoebox made from repurposed material and printed on with plant-based ink.
