This year marks 50 years since Neil Armstrong touched down on the surface of the moon and uttered those famous words: ‘That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’. So what better time than the 50-year anniversary of that momentous occasion is there to douse the Nike VaporMax Flyknit 3.0 in a neat ‘Moon Landing’ colourway? Of course, there is no better time.
While most of the upper rocks a grey tone reminiscent of the moon’s monotone surface, touches of orange have been expertly added for just the right amount of colour and contrast. The only other colour variation is some blue around the tongue, while images of the moon’s surface are projected onto the side Swooshes and around the heel.
