Although the wild Cactus Plant Flea Market collaboration has been dominating the headlines, Nike has also continued to roll out clean in-line makeups of their Vapormax 2019, one of which is this “Barely Grey.” Although the shoe is indeed grey in name, it appears to be more of an ultra-light oxidized green in color, possibly making for a sneaker lover’s version of the infamous “blue or gold” dress. One part of the shoe that is unquestionably silver, however, is the midfoot underlay, encased in the TPE upper and overlaid by a white Swoosh with an abstract printed pattern. More branding arrives via a black tongue tag/black text hits that wrap around the heel, and the look is then completed by a sparkling minty green Vapormax cushioning unit. No matter what their palette may be, these 2019s certainly present a look that’s unquestionably crisp and summer-ready, and you’ll be able to secure a pair on Nike.com for $190 USD come May 16th.
