Nike has just presented its latest addition to the ever-growing Air VaporMax line — and this time, the sneaker is adorned in a “Volt Black” colorway.

The VaporMax Flyknit has been on the market for over half a decade and the line is still pushing the boundaries of what a casual Air Max silhouette can be and do. However, with Air VaporMax’s 2021’s new “Volt Black” colorway, it’s now aiming to stand out from the crowd as one of the loudest and attention-seeking iterations to date.

In addition to this, Nike has also used this silhouette to experiment with sustainability like never before as the footwear giant has constructed the shoe with 40% recycled by weight — a notable sum, but one that’s less than the 2020 iteration, which came packed with at least 50% recycled content by weight.

However, when it comes to the design of the VaporMax Flyknit “Volt Black,” the sneaker boasts the brand’s “Move To Zero” trademarks through the Nike Grind details on the outsole, as well as with the recycled yarns on the Flyknit upper. Furthermore, a semi-translucent heel has been introduced to reveal the knit pattern beneath.

Rounding off the style — and impressively, to say the least — the release has been coated in the “Volt” hue, a color that has stayed at one with Nike’s running heritage — with the tone first being seen from 1995’s Air Max 95 model.

You can have a closer look at the Air VaporMax 2021 “Volt Black” above and the sneaker will be available on the official Nike website and with select retailers in the coming weeks.
