Retelling history with design: Borrowing the elements of more than eight Air Max sneakers released over 31 years, the Nike Air Vapormax Evo chronicles the evolution and development of the Air Max line. If you look at the sneaker up close, you will recognize design cues from the Air Max 90, Air Max 93, Air Max 96 II, Air Max Plus, Nike Tuned Max, Air Max Solas, Air Max 180+ and Air Vapormax 2020.
Part of borrowing the designs of the ‘90s and ‘00s is the inclusion of the era’s famous plush mesh uppers which provide incredible comfort and a one-for-one fit.
Retro designs paired with modern technology: The retro-inspired upper is attached to one of Nike’s most advanced technologies – the Air Vapormax midsole. Pieces of the outsole lugs have been swapped out for retro accent pieces, adding a touch of color to the otherwise transparent midsole.
Final note: For those who truly appreciate the history of the Nike Air Max and nerd out over the finer details in a sneaker, this sneaker is a must-cop. Considering the large number of colorways slated to release, the Nike Air Vapormax Evo should be an easy and worthwhile pickup.
