Nike Space Hippie 03: From rubbles to runways

The tallest among the sneakers in the Space Hippie Collection, the Nike Space Hippie 03 not only boasts its eye-catching futuristic style but also how it was made. It is considered a mashup of radical design and sustainability, inspired by the vision of how life on Mars will be - "scarce."

Exciting elements about the Nike Space Hippie 03:

To make this pair different from the usual, Nike used a few details to make it interesting:

  • Hype look. Thanks to the trend Off-White set, its imperfect finish creates another fashionable pair in the market. The untidy speckled looking midsole is made of blended foam scraps to create a lightweight feel.
  • Closure. The stretchable knit upper with an innovative Fast Fit system allows you to slip the sneaker on and tighten the fit quickly.
  • Sustainable. Using the assembly line wastes, this sneaker is made with 45% recycled materials by weight.
  • Packaging. This pair comes in a single box with a plant-based ink to lessen the overall carbon footprint. 
  • Outsole. The neck-breaking outsole has crater foam for style and bouncy strides.

Nike's Hippies

Aside from the Nike Space Hippie 03, Nike includes three other iterations in the Hippie collection; all use the rough-hewn finish suitable for the summer fit.

Nike Space Hippie 01. This low-top trash transformed kick looks like the Nike Epic React. It has rope-like laces for an easy adjustable fit.

Nike Space Hippie 02. This mid-top sneaker looks almost the same as its siblings but ditched the laces for minimalist appeal.

Nike Space Hippie 04. Exclusively dropped for the women, this low-top sneaker looks almost the same as the Nike Space Hippie 01, but added with a heel pull tab.
