Nike unveils masks made from shoe parts to fight Coronavirus

World renowned shoe company Nike is doing it’s part to fight the Coronavirus pandemic.

Nike is using materials from one of its best-selling shoes to make face masks for medical workers.

The company in collaboration with health professionals at Oregon Health & Science University (OSHU) released images of its design last week.

The mask uses collar padding once meant for the sneakers, as well as a drawstring cord to hold the protective equipment snugly to a health worker’s face.

The face shield also incorporates the TPU component from the Nike Air one of the company’s most popular shoes in its design as well.

The equipment will be assembled “in a streamlined nine-step process” at Nike’s Air Manufacturing Innovation facilities in Oregon and Missouri, the company said.

The Jordan-maker said that it delivered its first shipment to OSHU on Friday, April 3.

Nike’s announcement comes just days after Apple revealed its own design for adjustable face shields.

As of April 13th 2020, over 1.8 million people globally have tested positive for the novel Coronavirus, there have been over 110,000 deaths and over 400,000 people have recovered.
