Nike has created the Shek Lei Grind court, a refurbished community basketball court in Hong Kong that is meant, like other Nike courts around the world, to “reenergize spaces for sport and community.” For the sake of environmental responsibility, the court’s surface is made of Nike Grind, composed of up to 20,000 pairs of used sneakers. Nike Grind materials are palettes of recycled and regenerated materials obtained from plastic, foam, rubber, fiber, textile, leather and more. The Shek Lei Grind court is located in Hong Kong’s Kwai Chung, a residential neighborhood, which was chosen because of its proximity to 14 primary and secondary schools. Illustrations of spherical cartoon characters playing basketball created by a British artist and toy designer, James Jarvis, appear across the court. The recent Shek Lei Grind court adds to other community Nike courts around the world. Most recently, Nike and Converse helped refurbish three community courts in 2019 and 2020 in Paris, Beijing and Mexico City, in collaboration with the Parisian artist Stephane Ashpool.
