AM 90 NRG: An addition to the recycled materials collection

The brand pushes the Move to Zero campaign, making the brand focus on recycling extra materials used from the other sneakers. This movement kicked off with the release of the Space Hippie collection made entirely from scrapped materials.

The recycled Air Max 90 features an upper that is made of recycled cotton canvas. It comes with a light grey base and darker colored overlays. The colorway of this sneaker definitely follows the step of the Space Hippie sneakers.

Desert sand: A trifecta of natural shades

A "desert sand" take on the AM 90 NRG sneaker is also available. This colorway calls upon the color palette of a classic Nike ACG product. It features a tan suede mudguard, sand-colored overlays with detailings that seem to nod to the terrain patterns found on maps.
