About this Deal
Nike has announced an initiative where it accepts returned shoes that are gently worn or have a manufacturing flaw and cleans and sanitizes them. The refurbished shoes are then resold in select stores at a reduced price.
Nike has said it's aiming for a 70% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2025. It also wants to increase the amount of waste from its finished products that can be refurbished, recycled or donated by 10 times in that period.
Shoes have to be returned within a 60-day window from the date of purchase in order to be eligible for refurbishing. Once they're deemed fit for resale, the shoes are sent to a participating Nike store and the discounted price is determined based on the type and condition of the footwear. The shoes are displayed in a special section in stores.
An assortment of men's and women's shoes, including VaporMax, Air Max and React brands are included in the program, and kids footwear will be added to the program by the summer.
While some of the returned shoes will be resold, Nike said others will be donated, and shoes that can't be given a second life will be converted into recycled material.
