The unfortunate aspect of VaporMax is that the everyday person doesn’t understand how technically advance the shoe is. Based on the bonding technique it’s one of the first athletic running shoes that doesn’t rely on a traditional midsole between the upper and outsole. The price of the VaporMax is also on the premium side which is tough when the shoe is a general release in an environment that is very promotional. All of that has very little to do with why I like this version. I think if you look at this list you’ll notice I’m partial to tans, olives and browns and this version is a denim dream. It isn’t selling through very fast, but if you’re looking for a casual training shoe meant for running this is an dope option.
Details: With a reinvented cushioning system, the Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit Men’s Running Shoe delivers a lightweight, bouncy ride for a gravity-defying sensation underfoot and Flyknit fabric for a snug, flawless fit.
