Nike Unveils an Air Jordan 1 Made From Recycled Flyleather

After unveiling its latest innovative material, Flyleather, Nike has applied it to several of its classic models — including the Air Jordan 1.

The Nike Flyleather Jordan 1 SE is new take on the iconic basketball sneaker; it is a limited edition of the Jordan 1 that flaunts a texture inspired by Nike’s Safari print. Notable details include a digitally printed rose gold Swoosh, metallic gold lace tips and deubrés, a Nike Flyleather logo patch, and a Swoosh-engraved metallic gold charm.

The Nike Flyleather Jordan 1 SE is constructed in Oregon just like the Air VaporMax — likely because Nike wants to keep this new material under wraps. The shoe will debut in New York during Climate Week NYC 2017, but no release date or price has been announced.

  1. The problem I have with all sneaker-companies is that you can get good quality full-grain leather work boots(8″) for 80 bucks, yet on a sneaker, where you need much less leather, the price doubles, sometimes even triples.

    I like the environmental effort, but when sneakers hit 200+, it starts smelling like a money-grab to me.
