We’re only a week away from Nike’s annual Air Max Day celebration on March 26th, but this year will be particularly special because it celebrates three decades of visible air technology. While we’ve already received a number of awesome Air Max 1 retros in honor of the occasion, Nike is also rolling out the future of Air Max with the introduction of their latest and greatest creation: the Nike VaporMax.
The Nike VaporMax will debut on NIKEiD this Air Max Day in limited quantities with an homage to the past through a unique Volt outsole unit complete with a contrasting white and red Flyknit upper. This creation is meant to pay homage to the first ever Air Max Day sneaker – the Nike Air Max 1 “3.26” that debuted back in 2014 featuring a head-turning combination of the original OG Sport Red upper with a new-aged Volt midsole and outsole unit. There will also be Multi-Color variations available for your customization, but that’s not all. Nike will roll out their freshly minted AIRMOJIs, a range of graphic icons celebrating the legend of visible air with old school Blue Ribbon Sports logos, vintage Air Max iconography, and much more. We’re still unsure where exactly these will appear on the customizable VaporMax offerings – whether they’ll be limited to the insole or could even appear on the respective tongues, but we’ll have to wait and see.
The NIKEiD VaporMax offerings will be available for a limited time on March 26th via Nike.com.
