After Nike‘s VaporMax 2020 was first revealed as part of the brand’s 2020 Olympic Games lineup in February, we’ve now been given an official look at its “Multi-Color” iteration. Heading down a vastly different path from prior VaporMax models, the 2020 is sleek, sustainably built — made from at least 50% recycled content by weight — and strikingly stylish.

The “Multi-Color” makeup earns its moniker in vivid fashion. A full rainbow-like spectrum of hues is woven into the grey-based upper, all of which is crafted from 75% recycled manufacturing waste. A purple taped seam surrounds the sturdy heel piece, which itself presents a marbled mixture of blue and orange that’s replicated on the toe cap. Swooshes are kept to a simple black, with heel tabs introducing yellow into the mix.

Of special note is the FlyEase fit system. Although this one-handed lacing assemblage has appeared on everything from the Air Jordan 33 to the Space Hippie 03, this marks its debut on the VaporMax line. Atop the mosaic-patterned tongue sits a rectangular box that holds high tensile, winch-like cords. These are tightened by yanking on the heel’s multicolor, bungee-like “Lock” tabs and loosened by tugging on the green “Release” tongue tabs.

Translucent cushioning units are lower in profile than past VaporMax iterations, and snake around the outer and inner parts of the foot. This setup is reinforced in high-wear areas with purple, green or brown NikeGrind rubber, which also adds flecked detailing. Finally, insoles are dressed in yellow and boast a Nike Sportswear-style Sunburst graphic.

A release date for the Nike VaporMax 2020 “Multi-Color” has yet to be announced, but has been widely reported for July 23 via Nike channels. The MSRP is set at a tax-included sum of ¥25,300 JPY (approximately $236 USD).
