Nike's "Green" Shoe

In the spirit of shoe design (Meghan) and environmental design (my new "green" job), I wanted to share this new shoe Nike created (with Steve Nash, a basketball player for the Phoenix Suns) called the "Nike Trash Talk." The basketball shoe is made from the manufactured waste from the Nike factory. Until I saw this shoe I didn't stop to consider about how much waste shoe factories must produce a year. The Trash Talk retails at $100. Interesting idea, but not going on my shopping list. (unless I decide to become an NBA basketball player).
