The Nike Vapormax 2019 brings translucency into the new year

Nike gives the Vapormax a makeover in the new year.

Footwear drops: Nike x Sacai Blazer Mid fires up this week’s releases
Vapormax 2019 will now feature a TPE upper instead of Flyknit material

The Nike Vapormax 2019 will sport a semi-translucent upper, fresh detailing and a new air unit design.

The semi-translucent effect on the upper of the Nike Vapormax 2019 is achieved with TPE material. For 2019 Vapormax will be dressed in a clean all black colorway with white accents.

A semi-translucent upper enables views of the lockdown system of the Vapormax, a feature that has never before been made visible. The iconic air unit of the Vapormax has also been amended, and will arrive in a matte-finished smoky design.
