In an effort to reduce waste and encourage sustainability, at least 50 percent of the silhouette has been constructed with recycled materials. The shoe features a highly textured FlyKnit weave made up of a bold mix of monochromatic shades. A hi-tech FastFit lacing system has been added to the shoe, offering its wearer a consistently optimal fit. Contrasting details like white ripstop pull tabs at the top of the tongue and heel, an embroidered Swoosh at the sidewalls and a marbled rear quarter with a rope-lock tab round up the uppers’ design. All of these features rest over a transparent Air sole unit that’s made from 75 percent recycled TPU.
Nike’s Air Vapormax 2020 FlyKnit “Black” is currently available on atmos’ website for $222 USD.
