The Shek Lei Grind Court, a community basketball court in Hong Kong, is sustainably constructed from 20,000 pairs of used Nike shoes. The basketball court is made with Nike Grind, a proprietary material that is sourced from recycled shoe components like plastic, leather, rubber, foam, and more. Overtop the Nike Grind material, the Shek Lei Grind Court features whimsical cartoon graphics from British artist James Jarvis that imbue the space with a friendly feel.
The basketball court is part of an ongoing Nike project to contribute to community development through sport-focused initiatives. Due to the court's close proximity to 14 schools in the district, it will provide opportunities for play for locals. Alongside the refurbishing of the Shek Lei Grind Court, Nike partnered with InspiringHK which promotes social mobility and inclusivity through sports.
