Nike Air Vapormax

2017 has been the Year of the Air, most notably, Nike Air Vapormax. The Air Vapormax has been one of Nike’s most prized generally released silhouettes, and for good reason.

On the sprawling Nike Campus, the AIR Manufacturing Innovation Facility houses engineers and designers that have been working tirelessly for the last seven years perfecting the Vapormax from the ground up.

Removing the outsole and midsole of previous Air silhouettes, the Air Vapormax encompasses the entire sole of the sneaker. This allowed Nike to completely maximize the surface area to create a full length VaporMax Air unit that’s segmented for flexibility and pressure mapped for comfort.

The Air unit wasn’t the only thing Nike demolished. The upper was deconstructed and what was left behind is a seamless, sock silhouette that features Flyknit technology and Flywire cables entangled within to secure the runner’s foot will sink in and adjust to for ultimate fit.

The Air Vapormax is available at Foot Locker, Finish Line, & Champs. Unless, you have feet the size of a small child, good luck finding common sizes.

In just a few weeks, Nike will release the meticulously engineered Hyperdunk 2017. Completely redesigned from the 2016 model you saw Kevin Love rocking in the finals, 2017 will feature Nike’s new state of the art REACT cushioning.

Spawn of Nike Sports Research Lab, REACT cushioning is a composite of lightweight vinyl and durable Nitrile rubber. This cushioning system has been pressure mapped for comfort and impact tested for stability. Not to mention, being exposed to thousands of hours of finely tuned basketball conditions.

The REACT cushioning will sit beneath a flyknit type upper constructed over a 1/2 bootie frame that’s sure to bring a snug fit that will help you defend against getting crossed up in front of your friends.

Beginning August 3rd, Nike will release multiple Hyperdunk 2017 models and colorways, with the Nike REACT Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit leading the bunch.
