The silhouette reflects Nike’s commitment to offering sustainable footwear by limiting waste at different stages in the manufacturing process — at least half of the shoe’s materials have been made out of recycled content. One of the most significant features of the shoe is its hi-tech FastFit lacing system that ensures a comfortable and secure fit that’s consistent with each wear. Blue ripstop pull tabs appear at the top of the tongue and at the heel, while an intricately woven Swoosh is placed at the sidewalls. Set against its FlyKnit uppers is a rubber rear quarter panel that’s been decorated with a vibrant marble pattern. Other details like the shoe’s rope lock at the heel and a transparent full-length Air sole unit, made from 75% recycled TPU, complete the sneaker’s eco-friendly design.
Nike’s Air VaporMax 2020 FlyKnit “Stone Blue” is currently available on atmos’ website for $218 USD.
