Nike's latest iteration of the increasingly popular Space Hippie series has arrived and is slated for a mid-summer release. Scheduled to drop on Thursday August 20th, the Nike Space Hippie 01 Black Wheat is constructed of at least 50% recycled material by weight, hence Nike's message of "trash transformed." The upper of the sneaker features Nike's signature "Space Waste Yarn" - 90% recycled polyester comprised of recycled plastic bottles, shirts, and scraps of yarn. The beautiful and unique speckled midsole and wheat-colored signature Swoosh put the finishing touches on the sleek design.
Back in July, we saw a plethora of silhouettes from the newly debuted Space Hippie collection, including among others, the 01 Volt's and 03 Grey Hyper Crimson's. Nike continues to innovate and pave the road for a new generation of environmentally friendly sneakers, truly turning trash into treasure. For your best shot at securing your pair of the Nike Space Hippie 01 Black Wheat for the retail price of $130 on August 21st, keep it dialed in to Sole Retriever's official Raffle & Release guides, and be sure to follow us on Twitter & Instagram for the latest news and updates!
