The silhouette is part of Nike’s effort to bring sustainable footwear to consumers by limiting waste at various stages of the manufacturing process. Nike has made it possible to cut waste by making 50 percent of the shoe out of recycled materials. Most of this colorway embodies a striking “Team Red” tone, complemented by a hi-tech FastFit lacing system that not only makes it easy to lace up but ensures the most optimal fit. An embroidered Swoosh pops out from the shoe’s intricately woven FlyKnit uppers, while a marbly rear quarter comes with a rope-lock tab that can be pulled to loosen the laces. All of these details rest over a transparent full-length Air sole unit, made from 75% recycled TPU as a finishing touch to the sneaker’s eco-friendly design.
Nike’s Air VaporMax 2020 FlyKnit “Team Red” is currently available on Nike China’s website for $240 USD.
