Ahead of the highly anticipated drop, Newson sat down with Nike to shed some light on the design and his reaction to the VaporMax technology. “The overwhelming emotion when you see this thing for the first time is tactile. You want to touch it and squeeze it and figure out how it works. It is a mesmerizing thing really, “says Newson. As you might expect, Newson gave the design a major overhaul, adding premium leather and a cross stitch to the fray as a reflection of traditional handcraft. As he explains, “There’s this wonderful cultural juxtaposition of skills and things going on… It’s wonderful to be given the opportunity to work with all of these incredible new technologies and materials.”
