Nike Debuts Sneakers Made From Pineapple Leather

The new “Happy Pineapple” pack includes sustainable versions of the brand’s most iconic styles featuring Piñatex, an eco-friendly leather alternative made from pineapple fiber.

As part of their Move to Zero initiative, Nike debuts sneakers made from pineapple leather featuring sustainable versions of their most iconic styles.

Sustainable Nike Sneakers Made From Pineapple

Nike’s “Happy Pineapple” line includes eco-friendly renditions of their Air Max 95 NRG, Air Max 90 LX, Air Force 1, and Air Zoom-Type shoes. The sustainable Nike sneakers are made using Piñatex, a textured plant material crafted from pineapple leaf fiber that is used in place of leather on all five silhouettes. On top of that, the sneaker tongue on each style is embellished with an adorable smiling pineapple logo.

Nike Free Run Trail

The first “Happy Pineapple” pair to hit the market were these Nike Free Run Trail shoes. As of now, they are unavailable for purchase online. We hope they bring them back, but we are so glad these shoes are the reason for the larger collection. Speaking of which, let us introduce you to the available shoes in the lineup!

Free Run Trail

Nike Air Max 95 NRG

The Nike Air Max 95 NRG was designed for performance running but can be worn for any activity! The pineapple-based rendition is composed of at least 20% recycled content with a cork outsole that provides support and durability. In addition to the cute pineapple logo on the tongue of the shoe, the number “94430” is embroidered onto the toe, the grocery store reference number for organic pineapples. This style is available to purchase online for a limited time only.

Nike Air Max 90 LX

Where are all our Nike-loving girls at? This women’s sneaker design is the perfect way to stay true to your sustainability efforts and fashion vibes. The swoosh and heel on the Nike Air Max 90 LX are made from pineapple fiber, the outsole is constructed from cork, and the tongue and toe are decorated with the same pineapple logo and produce number. Click here to purchase these kicks before they’re gone!

Air Force 1 Low

The classic Air Force 1 Low sneaker is getting a makeover! There will be two tropical-themed styles—one that’s covered in a cork material, and one that highlights the same trendy colorway as the other shoes in the collection. Nike has yet to release these designs but word has it, they’ll be hitting the market very soon.

Nike Air Zoom-Type

The final shoes to join the collection are two colors of the Nike Air Zoom-Type. One is cream-colored, the other is predominantly black. Like the Air Force 1 Lows, these slips haven’t been made available yet but keep your eyes peeled for the new designs on the Nike website over the next few weeks.
