The Jordan ‘Crater Collection’ Is Crafted From Recycled Nike Manufacturing Waste

Jul 15, 2020

As part of Nike’s “Move to Zero” initiative — the sneaker and activewear brand’s effort to eventually become completely carbon-neutral and entirely waste-free — the Northwest company has increasingly been dabbling in manufacturing novel products from recycled materials. And the latest incidence of this sees Nike’s Jordan sub-brand adopt the tactic, repurposing a host of discarded bits from existing Nikes to deliver the new three-item “Crater Collection.”

Comprised of the Jordan Crater, the Jordan Crater Slide, and Air Jordan 1 High Zoom, the collection takes its name from its use of the “Crater Foam” which is partially made up of Nike Grind rubber harvested from waste. The uppers on the Jordan Crater and Jordan Crater Slide are composed of a “canvas-like” material backed by 100% recycled nylon webbings and reinforcements made from 80 to 100% mechanically-recycled polyester. The Air Jordan 1 High Zoom features uppers infused with recycled polyester made from plastic bottles and speckled Nike Grind rubber-injected foam outsoles. Prices have yet to be announced for either of the new Crater Collection trio, though they are scheduled for a release in the Fall of 2020.
