Thirty years of technological innovation culminates on the crowning achievement of Air Max Day 2017: the Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit. Tinker Hatfield introduced the concept of a visual air unit on the Air Max 1 in 1987. The Air VaporMax revolutionizes that idea by incorporating a full-length 360° air unit – we’re talking completely visible cushioning, a grand advancement for performance running shoes. The Pure Platinum and University Red colorway is constructed with a lightweight Flyknit upper. It’s accentuated by a red overlay Swoosh and bolstered Dynamic Flywire to match the dynamic outsole. The result is the lightest, most flexible Air Max ever.
