The latest model to pay homage to a discontinued sneaker box is the Nike Air VaporMax Plus.
Complete with a wolf grey, white and monsoon blue color scheme, this lifestyle runner is a tribute to the original Air Max sneaker box from the ’80s, where the bottom of the box featured a two-tone grey stripe pattern and a tonal bright orange top. Here the design is in reverse so the clear VaporMax unit appears in orange, while the textile upper features the aforementioned stripes. Completing the tribute is a white check at the ankle, a retro tongue tag, and a UPC code printed on the heel’s pull tab.
This Nike Air VaporMax is currently available on Foot Locker Singapore’s website for S$269.00 SGD (approximately $198 USD).
