This particular pair features a three-quarter-high sock-like fit, a bungee-cord lock lacing system, cushion foam midsole and full-length Air sole unit for explosive rebound and support. The all-black knit upper is accented by a bright strip of orange that wraps around the heel counter. More orange hits the mini Swoosh and laces, while a grey-speckled black midsole and translucent outsole give some additional contrast. Finally, 3M reflective “VaporMax” branding at the heel ensures visibility and a matching shoe bag lets you carry your sneakers in style.
The Nike Air VaporMax Utility “Orange Peel” will release on March 1 for a retail price of $225 USD at Nike’s online store and select Swoosh retailers. For something even brighter, check out the adidas Consortium UltraBOOST Mid prototype.
