Much of the Cosmic Unity conception was based off the founding principles of Space Hippie, the successful initiative by Nike that saw transforming trash into stylish and sustainable lifestyle footwear. Based on the learnings of Space Hippie and the proven methods established by Nike Basketball, the Cosmic Unity not only maintains the high standards of the Swoosh on a performance front, but also aligns with the company’s “Move to Zero” mission.
It would only be fitting for the Cosmic Unity to honor the Space Hippie with a dedicated release, and as part of the official unveiling of the sustainable basketball shoe, Nike revealed the familiar grey/blue/orange launch colorway from the original Space Hippie drops onto this uniquely design sneaker. The upper, made of recycled materials and a purposeful cable system for lockdown, sees the familiar shade of cool grey with blue and orange embedded into the recycled knit yarns. The recycled TPU swoosh also features a marbling of those colors, as does the Crater Foam sole, which features a finer Nike Grind fit for basketball. Overall, the Cosmic Unity is made of 25% recycled material by weight.
Currently, the only confirmed release date for any Cosmic Unity shoe is the “Green Glow” for February 26th, but Nike confirms a release of the Space Hippie for later in the Spring/Summer 2021 season.
