Nike is pushing the boundaries of its general release lineup with innovative materials. The latest addition is the Nike Dunk Low, featuring a bold combination of hemp and suede.

Departing from the traditional leather construction, this upcoming silhouette showcases pistachio-treated suede overlays that beautifully complement the intricately stitched hemp base layer and cream-colored tongue.

Hemp is an eco-friendly material, serving as a sustainable and greener alternative to traditional materials like leather. It requires less water and fewer pesticides for growth and its fast-growing nature enables efficient crop rotation, reducing soil degradation.

Its use in products promotes a circular economy, as it is biodegradable and can be recycled into various materials. By incorporating hemp into their designs, companies like Nike demonstrate a commitment to utilizing eco-friendly materials and reducing their carbon footprint in the fashion industry.
