In 2020, the Nike Vapormax took on sustainability far too quickly and aggressively, resulting in a color selection difficult to incorporate on an everyday basis. 2021’s iteration, on the other hand, improves on this point, its recycled materials a bonus to an otherwise classic look. And few are quite as “classic” as the “Pure Platinum” colorway, which is due to see an update very soon.
While familiar at a glance, the pair’s construction inches far away from the simplicity of the original. The Swoosh, for example, opts for thick, embroidered outlines and a speckled fill. What’s more, the TPU heel clip and lace unit are far busier visually, the latter in its additional webbing and the former for its robust, sculpted shape. Below, even the bubble sole bears changes of its own as the entire tread is outfitted with scraps of all colors.
For a closer, detailed look, check the official images below. While a release date is currently undetermined, we should see them at Nike.com and select retailers soon.
In other news, an Orange Blazer Mid First Use is about to hit the shelves.
