    AIR MOVES YOU


    With the latest Max Air innovation underfoot, the Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2 Men's Running Shoe brings fresh design elements. More support around the heel pairs with the foot-hugging feel of Flyknit. The futuristic sole completes the package, for a shoe that's as ready for your quick run as it is for an elevated look.


    Revolutionary Cushioning

    The latest innovation of Max Air cushioning provides an incredible feel from toe to heel. Eliminating the traditional midsole, the shoe features Nike Air directly underfoot. The cushioning helps protect against the impact of your footstrike as you run. And it feels amazing. Bouncy and buoyant, Air VaporMax gives you a gravity-defying sensation.


    Lightweight Support

    An added heel overlay provides more support than in the previous version of the shoe. This helps to give you a more secure feel to help keep your foot stable, rather than it rocking to the sides as you run.


    Flawless Fit, Breathable Comfort

    Flyknit fabric contours to the natural shape of your foot for a snug, sock-like feel. A more open knit throughout the top of your foot helps keep air flowing, whether you're tackling your daily 5km or a long day.

  • Behind the Design

    The Air VaporMax represents a new era in Nike innovation. "It's changed our whole philosophy on how we design for Air", says Cushioning Innovation Designer Zachary Elder. With the VaporMax, the designers wanted to truly capture the feeling of "running on air". The designers started by restructuring the Air unit so they could attach it directly to the upper. "That was the biggest challenge", says Tom Minami, Senior Footwear Designer—but it was worth it. "Without any midsole or sockliner, you get to feel the Air in a whole new way". In previous Air Max models, the goal was to fill the sole with as much Air as possible, but with the VaporMax, the focus is on using the Air efficiently. "As you step down, each lug gets pushed into the Air unit, ramping up the pressure", Elder explains. "As you step off, the pressure releases, creating that springy bounce". After the seven-year journey from ideation to release, Elder and Minami are excited for what's to come. "I'm super-proud of the product", Elder says. "This new approach is going to be a huge turning point for Air—and for Nike".


    Nike Air Max Origins

    Nike's revolutionary Air-Sole unit made its way into Nike footwear in 1978. In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 debuted with visible air in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air-Sole comfort—suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Nike Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking colour combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.
