Nike Air VaporMax 2021 release date and info
Since its arrival on the market in 2017,
The shoe’s launch slate includes five colors: “Armory Blue / Light Smoke Gray / Metallic Silver / White”, “Particle Gray / Aluminum / Light Liquid Lime / Barely Gray”, “Gray Fog / Bright Mango / Anthracite / White “White / Black / Metallic Silver / White” and “Black / Black / Anthracite / Black.” These color palettes run the gamut from bright to understated colors, but all five feature similar construction and technical specifications.
The VaporMax cushioning units are held in two bulky yet stylish pieces, one in the forefoot, the other in the heel. All are based on recycled rubber outsoles and are reinforced with recycled TPU clips. The uppers are made from stretch Flyknit and decorated with large Swooshes in the midfoot. The Air VaporMax 2021’s main divergence from its predecessor, the Air VaporMax 2020, is its lacing system: where the 2020 used FlyEase technology, the 2021 reverts to a more standard lacing system. There’s also a classic Nike Sportswear Sunburst graphic on the insoles and VaporMax accents on the tongue and heel pull tabs. The Air VaporMax 2021 build contains at least 40% recycled content by weight, a notable sum but less than the 2020 iteration – which promised a build with at least 50% recycled content by weight.
Expect the Nike Air VaporMax 2021 to hit the Nike online store in the coming weeks. Its MSRP is set at $ 200.
