Nike Air VaporMax Sole

Nike rolled out a number of announcements this week at its Innovation Summit, including a new development in their Air technology. Dubbed as “the pinnacle of air,” the new Nike Air VaporMax promises to deliver lightweight, consistent cushioning that lasts.

Coming courtesy of new technologies that allow the Nike VaporMax Air unit to act as a standalone outsole, new innovation allows designers to incorporate the Air and exterior layer into one holistic VaporMax Air unit. Where previous units needed to be shaped with inflexible structural areas, the new unit can independently maintain its given form, with elasticity.

The sole is to be introduced to a silhouette dubbed the Nike Air VaporMax, which will feature a lightweight Flyknit upper.
