Nike has just delivered a fresh take on its Air VaporMax EVO with a swathe of colorful accents. Featuring a crisp “Evolution of Icons” iteration, the new model follows the monochromatic “Wolf Grey” colorway seen last week.

As its name suggests, “Evolution of Icons” is a nod to Nike’s ever-evolving silhouettes, remixing a handful of notable design cues into one shoe. The uppers of this silhouette reference the Air Max 96 II, contrasted by a modern VaporMax sole unit. Starting at the top of the shoe is a “Nike” branding, complemented by an iridescent quarter panel that intersects with the tail end of the shoe’s side-Swoosh. Besides the glossy check logo at the sidewalls, the uppers come with a bevy of accents, like an “EVO” badge at the heel counter, a teal “Nike” patch below it, a navy rubber eyelet panel at the center of the tongue and black leather mudguards. As a final touch, the shoe features a full-length VaporMax sole unit for lightness and support.

Though no official release dates have been revealed, Nike’s Air VaporMax EVO “Evolution of Icons” is expected to arrive in the coming weeks on Nike’s website for $215 USD.

In case you missed it, here’s a look at Nike’s vibrantly-decorated Daybreak-Type N. 354 “Oatmeal.”
