Nike launches hemp sneaker with UK retailer

A United Kingdom retailer has launched a limited-edition hemp textile sneaker by U.S. athletic apparel giant Nike.

Nike has partnered with the UK retailer, called size?, to sell the Nike Air Zoom Type ‘Hemp’ shoe.

The shoe launched on the retailer’s app and in stores on Friday, priced at 140 pound ($185).

Nike did not respond to several requests for comment from Hemp Industry Daily.

According to a Hypebeast report, Nike has also partnered with clothing brand Stüssy to manufacture another hemp-based version of its Air Force 1 shoe.

The “Fossil Stone,” which features a tan upper fully constructed of rough-hewn hemp, will reportedly launch this holiday season, according to a post from sneaker leak account py_rates.
