Bottom line

Unique in the nature of its design, the Nike Air Vapormax Inneva comes in a street-style ready allure with its notable woven Inneva upper and Nike’s very own Vapormax sole. Its remarkably distinctive design adds more to its modern-sneaker appeal and keeps it versatile enough to match with numerous outfits. Express your fashion-creative side and stay stylish.

The Nike Air Vapormax Inneva features the quite distinctive hand-woven Inneva upper sitting atop the brand’s very own Vapormax unit. The upper, which is composed of nylon material, displays a weave pattern that is similar to a basket and it comes in different attractive colorways.

Despite just first seeing the light of day in 2017, the Nike Air Vapormax’s history goes way back in 1978 when the Nike Tailwind was introduced. The Tailwind was the first Nike shoe to give people the experience of “literally” walking on air. With the cushioning system from Fred Rudy and the design of the Tailwind silhouette, the Nike Air Technology fundamentals were set into motion. 

In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 was launched and was designed by the legend himself, Tinker Hatfield. The distinctive silhouette features the brand’s innovative Air Technology that shows a transparent heel side air pocket. Seeing the success of the Air Max 1, Nike continues its journey of innovation for this technology.

                 Vapormax Technology

In 2017, Nike introduced the Vapormax technology, 30 years after the birth of the Nike Air Max 1. It was then labeled as the peak of the Air Technology of the brand and it features the transparent, heel-to-toe, air-filled sole where the upper of the shoe directly sits atop. Since 2017, the multiple new Nike silhouettes feature the Vapormax sole. The Nike Air Vapormax Plus, Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit 3, and Nike Air Vapormax 360 to name a few. 

In 2018, the Nike Air Vapormax Inneva was released. The silhouette was a combination of two technologies together: the handwoven Inneva upper and the Vapormax sole. The sneaker was first released in “Summit White” and “Midnight Navy” colorways and the “Multicolor” colorway followed.

  • The Nike Air Vapormax Inneva subtly displays its Nike branding on the tongue with the traditional Nike Air logo.
  • The signature Swoosh logo of the brand is presented subtly on its heel.
