After a string of rocking Kobes, Anthony Davis helped debut a unique new Nike sneaker in the Cosmic Unity.
This is the first basketball sneaker to feature recycled materials. The Cosmic Unity is made up of at least 25% recycled materials by weight which are used on: the sockliner, laces, and even the marble injected swoosh. Like the Nike Sportswear Space Hippie designs before it, the midsole is made up of Crater foam, with 10% recycled grind from the Swoosh’s reuse-a-shoe program. The upper is also made up of recycled cable yarn, still providing the instant comfort you’d expect from a knit sneaker.
Even the Zoom strobel midsole is made up of partially recycled content, while still retaining the bounce directly under your feet that was last seen on the KD 13.
The Brow was first spotted in the shoe in practices, before debuting the shoe officially in a Lakers game in February 2021.
