The Nike X Steve Nash “Zoom MVP Trash Talk II “Â will drop on April 22, 2009 “Earth Day.” The eco-friendly Basketball shoe features an upper stitched together with leather and synthetic waste materials, an outsole constructed from “Nike Grind” a material from outsole manufacturing waste, and laces made from recycled polyester as well as a recycled EVA sockliner. The shoe will be packaged in a corrugated shoe box made from 100 percent recycled fiber, using 30 percent less material compared to the previous design.
“I have a passion for preserving our environment, so if I can wear a Nike basketball shoe that reuses waste, performs on the court and is packaged in a shoebox made from 100 percent recycled fiber, then that’s a winning combination,” said Nash.
So you can look fly and save the earth at the same time. Just make sure you ride your bike to the sneaker spot, keep it green playa. They will cost around $96.
