Nike’s Sustainability & Innovation With Their Launch Of The Space Hippie

Get ready for Nike’s Space Hippie futuristic sneaker. A vegan sneaker from top to sole made completely from recycled scraps off their factory floors. The sneakers are made from plastic water bottles, yarn scraps, and t-shirts. Nike’s mission towards a more sustainable practice comes from focusing on innovation, design, and the concept of how would you repair your sneaker in space.

Bravo to Nike for delivering their lowest carbon footprint scores of any shoe they have created thus far. You will have a choice of four silhouettes. So something for everybody! I am eyeing the 04. hyper minimal silhouette. You can sign up at Nike to be notified when your new spring sneaker will drop!

Everlane Adds Another Hero, The Court Sneaker

“We started with full-grain
leather produced at a gold-
certified tannery, then cut the
virgin plastic we were using by
54% (and counting).”

More from Everlane! The court sneaker is your everyday hero. Wear them for any occasion. Pair the Court with any outfit. Versatility awards them closet space. They are a clean, minimal, and subtle style choice. Choose from seven neutral colors. Way to go Everlane ! BTW, I am a fan of the no logo.

Everlane continues with their reputation to deliver a constant thoughtfully designed label. Every piece they launch simply proves it. Sustainability is a driver. Always exploring the process to do better. Transparency is what they do well. They are leaders in the fashion revolution. All these reasons are why I love this label and continue to highlight them.

A Post For The Sneakerheads

Kith

Have to share this one.  Thrilled to know Boston is representing with not one but two stores on HIGHSNOBIETY’s list of the best sneaker stores around the world that you can access from your favorite device.  Concepts which opened up in 1996 in Cambridge and Bodega who opened their hidden Boston gem in 2006.  I am lucky enough to visit both of these stores in person but the others I can only admire from their websites and social media channels.

To all you sneaker lovers out there, I think you will appreciate HIGHSNOBIETY’s leg work as much as I do.  isostilo recently explored Kith (on this list).  This is definitely where all the cool kids are shopping in NYC.  It is no longer just for the jet setters to hit the hippest places for kicks.  Check out the list!

Sneakers are here to stay and isostilo is a fan.  Just look around the next time you walk down the street, flip through a fashion magazine, or witness the sneakerheads that are waiting in line for a current drop.  You don’t need a reason to wear them.  They give an instant refresh and let us not ignore the comfort they deliver.

You may not love the current ugly dad sneaker but that is not your only option to be a player in the sneaker world.  What is your style?  Sneakers range from bold, subtle, classic, sleek, to sporty.  All the classics are back and they are not slowing down with their releases.  isostilo is a bit biased towards Nike and adidas.  Their prices are within reach and their styles are always on point.  There are plenty of players in the field.  Check out isostilo’s round-up from Net-A-Porter.  Prices swing!
