Although the Air Max 1 “Big Bubble” and Air Max Pulse headlining the Air Max Day releases in March, Nike’s most innovative Air Max drop might be coming next month. That would be debut of the Vapormax 2023 Flyknit, the next iteration of the franchise that debuted back in 2017.
Tweaking and refining the model ever so slightly, Nike’s latest delivery of the Vapormax Flyknit family sees a newly engineered knit upper with embedded cables that lock down the lace loops. The Vapormax cushioning unit is carried over from the 2021 model, although the midsole that scoops upwards is slightly retooled. The real change is clearly the aforementioned knit upper. which also makes use of that “unfinished” aesthetic by way of the exposed sponge innards at the ankle.
Already previewed in the basic (yet striking) black/white and pure platinum iterations, the Vapormax 2023 Flyknit emerges in a more lively manner via the Baltic Blue arrangement. A release date is tentatively scheduled for May 18th; expect these on nike.com and partnering Nike Sportswear retailers globally.
