Nash now a trash walker
Eventhough he's not going to single-handedly save the earth, its nice to see Steve doing his part. :)

The shoe is modelled after Nash's current shoe but uses different materials. That includes pieced-together scraps of leather and synthetic leather waste from the factory floor and a sole made up of materials including ground-up rubber from a shoe recycling program.

"It's what I'd like to say is a step in the right direction," Nash told the East Valley Tribune.

Nike says it is the first performance basketball shoe made from manufacturing waste. The shoes will retail for $100 (U.S.).

"I had nothing to with the price point," said Nash, "but I was definitely supportive about reusing."

Nash debuted the shoe last night in Phoenix against Dallas.

It would be nice that all the stars did the same. My props to Nash, this and what he said about the war say a ton about him.
