Nike Xchange Running Concept


THE XCHANGE separates between upper and outsole/midsole in order to replace worn
cushioning, facilitate breakdown for recycling, and allow for alternate outsoles, such as trail
running treads. Upper and outsole connect at hooks along the laces, as well as a heel strap.



A worn outsole/midsole is replaced with a fresh set up, and is attached to the original upper. The user purchases alternate outsoles for alternate running situations, such as an aggressive tread for trail running. At the end of the use cycle, the user separates the components for easier recycling and breakdown.
