The Vapormax was certainly one of the most popular new sneakers in 2017. After releasing the shoe in nearly every color way possible, Nike is able to move on and update the sneaker with a version 2.0 model. An early preview reveals a black color way with a clear sole as we’ll as a tan version on the way. Expect these early next spring in a boat load of options. While not drastically different, if you liked Vapormaxes before you’ll probably get something you like here as well. In other Nike news, their holiday sale is still ongoing with up to 50% off select items.
The Air Max TN is one of my all-time favorite Nikes and I’m really looking forward to Nike’s latest hybrid based on the sneaker. It’s paired this time with a Vapormax sole which ends up as a surprisingly good match for the upper. The upper has been styled in the look of an Air Max Plus, but it’s been remixed with modern materials and production tech. It’s rumored that these will release next year around Air Max day but there’s already plenty of leaks in terms of what we can expect in terms of color ways. Some of the models dropping include a triple black and triple white version, cool grey, as well as a multi-colored gradient version. My personal favorites might be the above Olive color way that gives off a slimy-looking iridescent green. These are certainly already on my radar and a pretty much a must-cop for me. Look for them to drop at Nike Lab retailers next year and click through for more photos.
Update – END has announced that they are releasing the triple black color way of these on Jan 25, so look for them to appear at other Nike retailers around that date as well.

The second “Tea Berry” colorway of the shoe features light purple on the sole. The unique color blocking on both sneakers elevate these past the GR VaporMax colors that had been dropping.
Both colorways of the NikeLab Air VaporMax will be available online and through select Nike Lab on July 7 for $190 USD.
