Nike’s latest innovation is the pinnacle of air. Remember the revolution. Thirty years ago, the original Nike Air Max debuted. It was the very first sneaker to display a visible Air-unit for cushioning and it started the revolution. Fast forward to Air Max Day this year and the legacy of Air Max will continue with the Nike VaporMax featuring ground breaking technology.
Previous Air units were insulated by a rubber layer which helped improve durability. The VaporMax Air unit is a standalone outsole. This new outsole was reshaped to increase flexibility and elasticity. It’s added durability eliminates the need for the traditional foam midsole seen in its predecessors.
