Nike is updating the Air Zoom Alphafly with a new model that the company says is their most sustainably-minded performance shoe. With Nike Basketball's Cosmic Unity achieving 25% total recycled content by weight, Nike Running took it one step further by creating a shoe with 50% total recycled content by weight. This is accomplished by doing things like using at least 70% recycled materials by weight in the ZoomX midsole and taking the leftover waste from the Zoom Air pods in the 3D-printing process that's used for the Flyprint and Flyknit upper.
