NIKE REUSE-A-SHOE SHOES DIE. SOLES LIVE ON.
After the championships are won and the confetti has fallen, the shoes are usually thrown out and forgotten. They deserve better than that.
WORN OUT. PLAY ON.
Reuse-a-Shoe grinds down worn out athletic shoes and turns them into new places to play.
So far, 28 million pairs of shoes have been tossed in the shredder box.
Each shoe is cut into three pieces to make Nike Grind.
. . NIKE GRIND RUBBER, FOAM AND FIBER
The outsole is used for track surfaces, interlocking gym floor tiles and playground surfacing. The midsole creates cushion for outdoor basketball courts, tennis courts and fields. The upper fabric becomes athletic-surface padding and equestrian surfacing.
THE ULTIMATE COMEBACK
Surfaces made with Nike Grind cover about 632,000,000 square feet - nearly enough to cover Manhattan. Get your own surface by visiting the Nike Grind site to get a quote.
WEAR. GRIND. REUSE. REPEAT.
Recycle your old shoes to create more surfaces to wear out new ones.
BACK IN THE GAME
Nike Grind is also used to make new products like the zipper pull on the Nike Vapor jacket.
