We've never had a problem getting behind Nike Considered's eco-consciousness, but there have only been a few styles that we'd actually, er, consider wearing. Following suit, new to the Considered family and taking a page from the Footscape series, Nike introduces the Long Ball Lace. With the looks of a deconstructed baseball, it's not really for me. But it's environmental cred is even more impressive than before. Entirely woven, it's made without any glues or chemicals and replaces the rubber footbed with cork, making it completely biodegradable and fully sustainable—100% of it can be recycled. Available here for ¥14,170.
