Nike Flyleather Air Force 1

Nike Flyleather is a new super material. It is made with at least 50 percent recycled natural leather fiber. That matters, because it means Nike Flyleather deftly balances a much-loved tactile quality with an important reduction in the carbon footprint and water usage required to manufacture it.

It’s also cool because — if we’re thinking about the future — Nike Flyleather becomes the answer to retaining the qualities intrinsic to some of Nike’s greatest icons (think the Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1) with an environmentally responsible process.

It can carry all types of feels

Think full grain and smooth leather and suede (which actually comes from the reverse side of a Nike Flyleather roll).
