Nike Brings Its Sustainable ‘Crater Foam’ To The Iconic Air Force 1 Sneaker

Sep 30, 2020

Category: Style

Ever since the debut of Nike’s innovative Crater Foam construction, the brand has been revitalizing its entire footwear range to take on the unique tech. Now, one of its most iconic silhouettes, the Air Force 1, has been revised with the eco-friendly material, garnering unique performance principles and sustainable properties in the process.

Calling upon a blend of foams and repurposed Nike Grind Rubber, the Air Force 1 “Crater” adopts the sustainable mindset of the brand, providing wearers with conscious construction that doesn’t push the shoe’s long-running heritage to the side. While the Air Force 1 remains true to form, it introduces a performance-focused foam backer crafted from 20-percent recycled TPU, a PU recycled synthetic leather upper, and an eye-catching speckled Nike Grind outsole for impeccable traction on a variety of surfaces. As a result, a translucent front panel and zig-zag stitching play nicely with the shoe’s solid grey/black upper, providing an abrupt aesthetic contrast that sets the sustainable Air Force 1 apart from Nike’s alternative Crater offerings. Look for the Nike Air Force 1 Crater to release on October 1 via the company’s website.
