Nike: shoes designed to be disassembled

Nike‘s ISPA design division, a team dedicated to the philosophy of challenging designers to experiment and break molds when creating new products, presents a new sports shoe.
The team considered circular design as a fundamental principle with a particular focus on the disassemblability of the elements that make up footwear, considered to be the main challenge in the sector to enable future recycling of materials.
The LINK model features a futuristic silhouette with three interlocking elements, without the use of glue.
The midsole consists of pegs that fit and insert into specially designed openings in the upper. The shoe is assembled without the need for energy-intensive processes such as cooling or heating systems.
The shoe at the end of its life can be disassembled into its parts and delivered to Nike shops that offer a recycling service.
