Nike‘s latest Air VaporMax 2020 high-performance lifestyle sneaker receives a contrasting new colorway, utilizing multi-color patterns and eco-friendly recycled parts, but with a darker, bolder color palette.
“Smoke Grey,” as this colorway is called, is found across the majority of the Flyknit upper. A multicolor recycled yarn weave, also found in the last pair of VaporMax 2020s, is intertwined beneath at the toe and Swoosh area, giving the grey almost a purple-toned hue. Nike’s proprietary Grind material — made from recycled synthetics — can be found across the heel and midfoot for the lightest shade on the sneaker, besides the white Swooshes themselves. Black is found around the ankle collars and wire-lace area, while a dash of red hits the tongue and heel pull, as well as the locking rope around the rear shell. To finish it off, a completely-transparent outsole is found on the bottom.
With all colors and hues combined, the shoe comes off very balanced not only in shape and fit, but now color as well.
Check out the Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Flyknit “Smoke Grey” above and purchase off of Nike SNKRS when it drops on July 30 for $250 USD.
If you’re looking for something a bit more old school, Nike also released imagery of a new Air Max 90, in a vintage “Natural/Chili Red” colorway.
