Nike Print Pack: Shoes Made from Old Magazines

Maybe there's life for print publications after all. Or at least an afterlife. Nike has released a set of shoes made from old glossies.


Maybe there's life for print publications after all—or at least an afterlife. Nike just released the Women's Premium Print Pack, a limited edition set of three shoe styles, all made using shredded magazines.

The pack contains the Flash Macro Premium, the Blazer Mid Premium, and the Air Rift Premium. While the shoes have regular soles, strings, and other components, the main material used in each is a kind of laminated, stitched fabric created from old glossies. Unfortunately, you may have to travel outside the states to get them: Nike says they will only be available in Europe, China, and "select emerging markets."

The vast majority of the inmates were murdered in the gas chambers while others died of starvation, disease, exhaustion, and executions.
