Nike Trash Talk

All-Star point guard Steve Nash, known for his attention to environmental awareness, has joined up with Nike to create the Trash Talk, the first basketball shoe made from manufacturing waste. The shoe's eco-friendly features include:

  • The upper is made from leather and synthetic leather waste from the factory floor
  • The mid-sole uses scrap-ground foam from factory production
  • The outsole uses environmentally-preferred rubber and incorporates Nike Grind material from manufacturing waste
  • Laces and sockliners which use environmentally-preferred materials
  • A recylable shoe box

Earlier this year, Nike designed its Air Jordan XX3 shoe to be environmentally correct.

Nike touts the sneaker as the first product in its companywide "Considered" initiative. The sneaker uses a minimal amount of adhesives and glues that are considered environmentally unfriendly, instead relying on a system of interlocking panels, which meant designing new machines to produce the shoe.
