The all-new Nike VaporMax 2021 isn’t all that different from its predecessor when scoping out its overall shape, but it is deemed as one of the Swoosh’s most sustainable propositions to-date given that it’s engineered with at least 55% recycled content. Full-length VaporMax Air units are created with 75% recycled materials while the outsoles implement Nike Grind and the TPU heel and toe tips are crafted with 60 percent recycled materials. Air Max Pre-Day and Air Max Genome makeups, both of which have been modified with recycled uppers are also tossed into the mix.
Nike’s Sportswear division is also thrusting in a few colorways to the lineup including that of the Air Force 1, Blazer Mid and the Daybreak to form the “Plant Cork” Pack. Each take is manufactured with roughly 20% recycled content such as Recycled Poly Canvas, and comes mated with outsoles that are presented with 9% cork.
Elsewhere in the lineup you’ll find the Nike Crater Impact — a brand new model that’s built with crater soles and 25% recycled uppers — more Cosmic Unity colorways, and sustainably made Air Zoom SuperRep 2 Next Nature and the Nike Victory G Lite variations.
Expect all of these iterations to roll out over Summer 2021 via Nike and select retailers.
