Taking on a “Phantom Bright Cactus” colorway, the Nike Cosmic Unity 3 has just been revealed.
Nike Basketball may not have the same fervor surrounding it as it did a decade or so ago, however, we still constantly see innovation from the brand. As sustainability and eco-friendly design have taken over the design ethos of Nike as a whole, the newest releases take on plenty of eco-friendly materials and packaging. Not too far off from the Nike Space Hippie line, the Nike Cosmic Unity series has seen performance basketball silhouettes come constructed out of materials that are better for the planet. Continuing the line, a third rendition of the Nike Cosmic Unity (aptly named the Cosmic Unity 3) has just appeared in a “Phantom Bright Cactus” colorway.
Taking on a brand new design, the silhouette maintains its knit upper with neoprene on the tongue giving you lockdown and cushion. Tonal shades of phantom cover a majority of the 3D-like knit while embroidered details appear in a bright cactus hue. Hits of pink appear near the collar with the Swoosh logo and portions of the collar itself coming in this color. More bright cactus hits come courtesy of the lace set and pull tab atop the tongue while the rest of the Air Max 97-like wavy upper come finished off by shades of phantom. Underfoot sits a foam midsole with a TPU panel that provides a cutout to a mesh portion featuring a pink rose-like design. Finishing the design is the green rubber outsole below. Considering the line has utilized recycled materials in the past, expect a portion of the material makeup to be sustainable and eco-friendly.
The Nike Cosmic Unity 3 Phantom Bright Cactus is set to release Summer 2023 through Nike and select NSW retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $170.
