Nike has designed footwear that provides runners with a measurable benefit for the Tokyo 2020 Games. The NEXT% platform will now expand into new disciplines following its success in distance running.
Nike has also debuted a new collection that incorporates sustainable materials for all athletes. Nike's sustainable innovations highlight the brand's commitment to helping protect the future of the planet. Nike continues to lead the way through various projects that they've presented - sustainability as their primary focus.
This summer, Team USA medalists will take the podium at the Tokyo 2020 Games in iconic Windrunner jackets made from 100% recycled polyester and pants in 100% recycled nylon.
The Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% is Nike's newest race-day shoe. With additional foam and an updated carbon fibre plate, it adds to the improved cushioning of your feet as well as the economy.
The Nike Air Zoom BB NXT is Nike's iconic basketball shoe. Light and responsive. With the new Nike Air Zoom pod system, the exposed foam allows athletes to exert lightweight strength with optimised protection.
Nike SB will introduce kits on the forefront of sustainable design. Team USA, France and Brazil will compete in uniforms designed with 100% recycled polyester made with pattern efficiency in mind to produce as little waste as possible during the production process. Styling of these uniforms work to celebrate each nation's unique culture.
This spring, Nike will also launch an exploratory footwear collection that pushes the limit for sustainable product design. Space Hippie will be using scrap metal found on factory floors, now termed "space junk", into this circular footwear collection.
