Nike Air Vapormax Premier Flyknit History

Emerging from the running-centric Vapormax Flyknit range is the lifestyle sneaker Nike Air Vapormax Premier Flyknit. Before we plunge into one of the latest releases from the range it is just right to make acquaintances with its roots and heritage first.

  The Nike Air VaporMax Premier Flyknit’s Roots

The Vapormax’s bloodline is rooted in the revolutionary Air Max range which debuted in 1987 and took the world of cushioning technology to a whole new level. A decade after the Nike Air Max 97 pushed the envelope further by applying the Air unit along the entire sole. Nearly thirty years later Nike decided to continue the upward progress of their Air technology by introducing the Nike Air VaporMax line, which promises full Air cushioning that is lightweight than ever.

What separates the VaporMax from the Air Max is that the former provides cushioning on its own without any support from any other add-on materials, unlike the latter which needed a secondary rubber layer for protection and durability. With the shredded weight and bulk, the VaporMax offers enhanced flexibility and responsiveness.

Building on its predecessor’s reputation of optimal comfort and lightweight fit, the Nike Air Vapormax Premier Flyknit amps it up on the style department. Outlined in a tall silhouette, this sneaker comes packed with unorthodox aesthetic elements such as extending tongue for easier on and off and magnet strap closure in exchange for the usual lace-up design.

Although available in a number of striking hues such as team red/gym red/black and black/green strike/bright mango/signal blue it is always a good idea to check shoes like the Nike Air Vapormax Premier Flyknit in either grey or black, silver and white colorways for more versatile choices.

Additional Info
