Performance Lineage

Innovative, Sustainable Surfaces.

From the rubber in a running track to the carpet padding beneath your feet, Nike Grind—a raw material made from recycled athletic shoes and Nike manufacturing scrap—is used in diverse surfaces.

Nike Grind is bringing increased sustainability and performance feel to world-class stadiums, local schools, innovative universities and even private homes.

Safety & Environmental Benefits

Safe and responsible, a surface made using Nike Grind presents a number of benefits over other surfaces:

  • Safety Standards

    Because Nike Grind is made from recycled shoes and pre-consumer materials, it meets consumer safety standards by design.

  • Beneficial Reuse

    Our partners’ surfaces typically contain between 10 and 40-percent Nike Grind material, and many contain additional recycled materials in their composition.

  • LEED Certification

    Nike Grind material can provide points toward LEED certification, depending on the quantity used and the amount of other sustainable materials used in your project.
