The multi-colored fabric works in unison with strips of recycled cork from the midfoot to the heel to deliver a woven construction reminiscent of the Nike Air Woven first seen in 2000. Although no official details on the shoe have been revealed, these are probably the sneakers are yet another collaboration between Nike and Ananas Anam Ltd., creator of Piñatex.
