Air Max Day may still be a couple of months away, but that hasn’t stopped Nike from celebrating its legacy of Air technology. Enter the Nike Air VaporMax EVO NRG, the latest sneaker to come from the Swoosh brand and one that features a mismatching, asymmetrical upper that combines design elements from past Air Max Day sneakers, comprising the Air Max 90, 93, 96, Air Max Plus, Tuned 99, Solas and 180.

The alternating design brings nods to some of the most sought-after Air Max sneakers around, for example adding the Air Max Lunar90 SP “Apollo 11” print to the mid-panel, the faux pony hair on the eyestay and front-quarter from famous pairs such as the AM95 pony pack or atmos’ animal rework, the “Duck Camo” from the eponymously-titled AM90, and various other details all around.

On the tongue, we can find a metallic silver panel like that on the AM97 “Silver Bullet,” while OG Air Max 95 branding graces the left pair’s medial rear-quarter. Altogether, the Nike Air VaporMax EVO NRG seen above is a monster mash of all of the greats that went before it, sitting atop the sportswear giant’s now-signature VaporMax 2 air unit that provides comfort and support at various pressure points all along the foot.

Rounding out this special pair is the box, which also combined a number of prints and patterns relating to some of the shoes and styles that you can find on the sneaker itself. Take a closer look at the Nike Air VaporMax EVO NRG in “Black/Clear/Metallic Silver/White” above, and purchase a pair from stockists such as Asphalt Gold on February 18 for €215 EUR (approx. $257 USD).

For more archived designs, Stüssy is bringing back its OG Nike Air Huarache LE “Desert Oak” collaboration.
