In 2018, the swoosh brand changed the sneaker game for good with the release of the Nike Air VaporMax, a shoe seven years in the making. Taking innovation to the next level, the VaporMax ditched the classic midsole in favour of an Air unit and pod combo, which provided the lightest and most responsive cushioning to date. This was the next phase of the Air Max legacy, and it continues to be at the top of many sneakerheads’ to-buy list, available in several different styles, including Flyknit and mesh.

Having dropped only months after the VaporMax’s initial launch, the Flynkit edition brings a more lightweight and breathable experience, with an upper that wraps your feet in a snug, sock-like surrounding. They feature an additional synthetic support at the heel to ensure you still have a secure fit, all the while bringing you closer to the feeling of walking on air.
VaporMax Triple Black
All black everything. The Triple Black edition of the Nike Air VaporMax gives you the cleanest, most versatile look ever with the added benefit of keeping you light on your feet. Every inch of the sneak is black, so you can switch up your style and make a statement with the standout tonal effect it provides.
Are you a fan of the iconic Air Max Plus from ’98? You’re in luck. The VaporMax Plus continues the ‘Tuned’ runner’s legacy by rebranding the ‘Tn’ logo to ‘Vm,’ boosting it with the latest technology. Synthetic caging on the sidewalls and a range of bold colourways guarantee that the Plus can’t be ignored.
The Nike Air VaporMax is constantly moving forward, and the 2 model is a clear example of this, refining and improving every aspect of the OG trainer. Flyknit uppers keep the weight low, while the synthetic ankle support adds an extra layer of security. It’s also worth mentioning the colours of the upper and supportive pods, which have given the featherweight design some additional flair.
