UPDATE. Months after protesters disrupted Nike’s NYC flagship store, as shown in this video, condemning the company’s support of mass kangaroo slaughter for soccer shoes, Nike announced... it will STOP using kangaroo leather. This is a HUGE victory for the animal rights movement and for the animals who will no longer be slaughtered. Here is Nike's 2023 statement: “This summer, Nike will launch a new boot innovation in its Tiempo franchise. The Tiempo Legend Elite will debut with a new Nike-only, proprietary synthetic upper. The upper has a new material that is a better performance solution and replaces kangaroo leather. In addition, the Tiempo Premier, also set to launch this summer, will move away from using kangaroo leather. Nike divested of its only kangaroo leather supplier in 2021 and will stop making any product with kangaroo leather in 2023.”
