UPDATE: Breaking news – the 'Pure Platinum' and red VaporMax has been revealed to be a women's colourway and official Nike images have now surfaced. The lucky ladies needn't worry about the jealous gents, as a similar men's colourway has just been revealed to ensure everybody's happy. There still isn't any specific release info on this one, but we'll keep you posted.
The impending release of Nike’s Air VaporMax has had us on the edge of our chairs since the shoe was announced in early 2016. And, while we’re still impatiently waiting for a drop date to be announced, we’ve at least got some new images to placate our big-bubble needs in the meantime.
As is increasingly the case, this sneak peek comes from the shadowy corners of Instagram – meaning we can’t say for sure whether it’s the real deal. The mix of a blueish-grey streaked with hot red Flyknit and a blazing Swoosh has certainly captured our attention. Round that out with the innovative bubble system that seems to defy physics, and you’ve got a build that we can't wait to get our hands on.
As noted there has been no word from Nike about this release, but stay with us and we’ll update you with more info when it arrives.
