After only a few months on market, the Air VaporMax looks to be getting a dramatic new feature (which makes sense – the shoe spread like wildfire through the sneakersphere and this would keep that fire raging). New shots reveal that either someone has whipped up a clever custom and deserves a job at Beaverton, or Nike have sewn an elastic band into the VaporMax's build. Joint to the Air midsole on the lateral side, the strap could continue the work of sneakers like the Air Footscape, the side-lacing runner that sought to correct a runner's pronation.
Or it could just be a stylish design update. Either way, we’ll let you know as soon as Nike weigh in with more info.
