The Nike Cork Air Force 1s are a step in the right direction when it comes to sustainability. The sports clothing giant has come up with a new design for its shoes, which uses recycled cork as the main material.

Instead of being mass produced, these sneakers are completely customizable for a limited time only. The designs come in dark or lighter colors, with options to add hues to the laces and a Nike logo in certain spots. The fact that these kicks are customizable, however, is not the main attraction. Considering the material can help save the planet, this is reason enough to invest in a pair. The shoes start at $190, which is a pretty good deal considering buyers are reducing their urban footprint and making the planet that much better.
