This season Nike is on a journey to help protect the planet, launching an array of seasonal collections made up of sustainable materials and created in eco-friendly ways, helping Nike towards achieving its 2025 sustainability targets.
From a new sportswear range, a tech pack, Nike pro apparel, air max and Nike classics, the sportswear brand has created multiple capsules for SS22. The new capsule consists of reimagined iconic Nike pieces such as their Windrunner jacket, which is now made with at least 75% recycled and organic material. Design teams and manufacturers have worked to transform general manufacturing waste into fleece, canvas, and rain jacket materials. These were then used to create other unique sportswear pieces such as their Woven Track jacket, created with 100% sustainable materials!
Playing with design and innovation, Nike developed a Tech Pack for 2022, including a men’s insulated vest, women’s parka, woven jackets, and overalls – all designed to be comfortable and versatile, contributing to helping Nike scale its use of recycled materials.
Not only has Nike been taking steps to work alongside the new wave of eco-fashion through their use of recycled and organic materials, but they have also adopted different methods of manufacturing, for example, their Nike Tech Pack overalls are made up of woven materials that are dyed using a new process that uses fewer chemicals.
One of Nike’s more in-demand ranges, their Nike Pro line, has been developing products made of lower-impact materials since Spring 2021. Their Nike Pro shorts and tights have been made with at least 50% of recycled materials, showing the positive effects of using these materials on a large scale.
As well as making changes to their clothing capsules, Nike has also reinvented some of their Air Max Classics. For example, The Nike Air Max Dawn is a vintage-inspired trainer created with 85% recycled suede. The vintage feel is offset by the modern Air Max motif and is perfect for a comfortable all-day look.
In celebration of Nike’s 50th Anniversary, Nike has reimagined their iconic Waffle, Blazer, and Dunk with sustainability in mind. They have been recreated with at least 20% recycled content and delivering an iconic style with substantially less environmental impact is a testament to Nike’s eco-friendly ambitions.
Through working hard to change the way they create their products; Nike is joining the vital movement to continue to make the fashion sphere a more ecologically sound industry in the future. We can’t wait to see what the activewear powerhouse has in store!
