Adding to its growing lineup of Air VaporMax hybrid silhouettes, images of Nike‘s newest mashup footwear option recently surfaced.

Dubbed the Air VaporMax Premier Flyknit, the high top model is inspired by the unique upper of retired NBA star Gary Payton’s Nike Air Zoom GP signature shoe. Ditching the traditional lacing system, the one-piece Flyknit upper features a leather shroud and canvas lockdown strap adapted from the Air Zoom GP, providing a uniquely-secure fit. Set to debut in a black, grey and a multicolor option, medial paneling, a leather tongue and matching lateral Swooshes serve as the additional detailing elements on the upper. A segmented midsole cushioning and a VaporMax sole unit round up the design of the shoe.

No official drop notes just yet, but take a look at the upcoming model above and stay tuned for release details.
