UPDATE: Ladies and gentlemen, we have excellent news. The black Air VaporMax has well and truly sold out at Nike's online store, but thanks to a staggered release there are more to come. The beauties will be landing at retailers around the world on June 29 in both men's and women's sizes. Go and hassle the homies at your local boutique or keep your browsers dialled on Titolo and pull the trigger.
While there have been plenty of stunning VaporMax colourways, few get sneakerheads hot under the collar like the ‘Triple Black’. With a Comme des Garçon, NIKEiD and NikeLAB release already getting the shadowy treatment, the make-up has established itself as uber desirable. But if you'ver been left wanting after the aforementioned drops, Nike are giving you another chance.
These ‘Black/Anthracite’ pairs are nearly identical to the Triple Black versions. The full-length Air unit and Hyperfuse guards look too be the same deep black but, oddly enough, the uppers on these look even darker. The knit on the NikeLAB pairs is mottled with grey, but this pair is seems to have more liberal amounts of black. We'll have to seem them on-foot to ascertain all their nuances – but there's no doubt that this will be one of the hottest Air releases this month.
The Nike Air VaporMax in Black/Anthracite will be available in men’s and women’s sizes on June 22 from the SNKRS page of Nike online.
