A lot of sneaker brands have turned their sights to combating the virus. Instead of sneakers they’re making personal protection equipment. Nike the innovative organisation it is, have jumped on the trend and have developed a new Face Shield to help the front liners of the battle for the coronavirus.
components such as Sneaker collar padding, apparel and TPU from Nike Air sneaker soles have all been repurposed to become elements of the face shield.
Health Care workers at OHSU (Oregan Health & Science University) were the instant testers for the new hardware to see how applicable they are to be used in the proper environment
The aim of the project was to provide highly functional that was easy to manufacture equipment and made the most impact.
Though they’re meant for health workers, it wouldn’t be a surprise if people starting wearing the Nike Protective equipment to flex on their socials.
