Nike is making Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) face shields out of re-purposed materials for footwear and apparel. We all know what has been going on for sometime now. In an ongoing effort to assist those at the front line of the COVID -19 pandemic, Nike has come up with this.
Nike’s internal Innovation and Air Manufacturing Innovation teams have developed and streamlined a nine-step process for the full-face shields. These protective instruments are created from reconsidered, Nike-owned materials: Collar padding once intended for shoes; cords originally earmarked for clothing; and, most important, Nike Air soles’ TPU component. Together, these three re-purposed elements will help healthcare workers stay safe as they work tirelessly to save lives.
