This weekend saw the release of the highly anticipated Nike VaporMax in celebration of Nike’s 30th year of Air Max. The release, of course, generated enormous lines of people camping in the streets here in New York. Nike really did push themselves while campaigning the shoe leading up to the release. They teased the VaporMax a week prior to release with a photo-shoot featuring international celebrities such as G-Dragon, Neymar, MO, and Ruby Rose.
If you want to see more spring looks, make sure to come to the annual FFP Fashion Show this Friday, April 7th, at the Rose Hill Gymnasium at 5:30pm! Regular tickets are $5. VIP tickets are $12 and come with gift bags valued at $250!
All proceeds go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, so we hope to see you there!!!
Nike also teased the release of the shoe with a video showcasing five experimental designs created by young design students from around the world. The designs were meant to highlight and amplify the innovation that went into the creation of the VaporMax.
The Nike VaporMax was originally only released in three colorways: Pure Platinum, University Red-Wolf Grey, and Black. However, recently leaked pictures show the VaporMax in five new colorways: Oreo, Burgundy, Pale Grey, Asphalt, and Blue Orbit.
According to Nike, “Air Max builds upon its nearly 30-year legacy with a leap: the Nike Air VaporMax.” The shoe combines a flexible flyknit upper with the new ultra-light sole. The shoe visibly deviates from some of the more classic Air Max silhouettes so it will be interesting to see how people incorporate the VaporMax into their wardrobes.
