The Cosmic Unity 2 is the follow-up to the Nike Cosmic Unity. It aims to take the next step in the evolution of high-performance basketball shoes while also being environmentally friendly.

Unique to this shoe is the use of recycled yarn as a basis

The sneaker has an exaggerated shape and futuristic lines all over. The base is made of recycled yarn, and the overlays are colored with Coconut Milk. On the left sneaker, the pulltabs are written in pink, while the ones on the right are written in baby blue. The heel counter and Swooshes on the outside of the shoe go all the way down into the midsole, and a full-length Zoom strobel system protects the foot from impact. The sneaker is finished off with a Coconut Milk outsole with different patterns.


The Nike Cosmic Unity 2 is a good shoe as a whole. It lives up to the high standards set by its predecessor, and it doesn’t fail horribly at being environmentally friendly. But if you want something that is both good at what it does and good for the environment, this might not be the best choice.
