This Nike Air Max 97 is made with about 20 percent recycled content, including Recycled Poly Canvas and other textiles on the uppers. Front and center is the cork plant, seen via the fine embroidery and applique on the tongue, while actual cork material is used on one of the upper tracks of the Air Max 97’s signature silhouette. The outsole is crafted from 9 percent recycled cork — partially sourced from the wine industry — infused in the rubber. This creates a natural look and feel and lowers the overall impact of that material. Completing the design is a solid white midsole, and a dark cinder rubber outsole underfoot.
