Without a doubt the most obvious and radical change on the shoe is the upper. Instead of the usual Flyknit base, the VaporMax features the synthetic material we know from the React Element 87. The upper on the first colorway isn’t fully translucent though and features an all-over web pattern.
Rendered in a black and greyscale design, a reflective tongue label adds subtle accents while the opaque VaporMax sole remains the same as on previous models. A black side Swoosh, “VaporMax” ribbon branding and a TPU cage on the heels round out the sneaker.
