After the excellent success of Air VaporMax original, the Swoosh Air team planned their next project and developed Nike Air VaporMax Plus! This release was like taking several steps right into the future for Air innovation. Firstly, it was one of the first pioneers for hybrid culture in the Nike barracks. Do you see where this is going? If you are an avid follower of the Swoosh Air family, then you are already guessing, and the chances are, you are right.
TN Air Max Plus came out way back in 1998 when the Nike Air cushioning technology was a massive hit. The '90s were a significant time for the brand, and we also got to enjoy one after another Air-Sole variation on Nike Trainers. Similarly, the Air Max Plus, Tuned 1, or Air Tuned 1, whatever you call it, the features and the comfort were extraordinary. Despite the limitations of the '90s technology, the designer, Sean McDowell, made it a huge success. Then again, in 2017, Dylan Raasch, the Design Director at Nike Sportswear, gave us Nike Air VaporMax! He replaced the foam sole and added chunky Air Max pods so that the wearer is more comfortable with each step.
Now there's nothing left to guess because you already know what we're on. After the success of TN Air Max Plus and Air VaporMax, 20 years later, the team brought both of their features together! As a result, we saw the mash-up as Air VaporMax Plus in January of 2018.
Will Nike release more VaporMax? - Many were asking the same question because the VaporMax technology quickly took over the driving seat! The distinctive Air VaporMax Plus silhouette owes its awesomeness to some sneaker icons. For example, the palm tree decoration of the Air Max Plus, vibrant colours, and an upgraded Tuned Air from VaporMax series.
Here's what changed this time. VaporMax Plus uses a foam midsole that was nullified for the previous version of AIR striker. The pods provide the highest comfort and springy sensation, which is even better than the last release.
The combination of highly modified Air Max Plus upper body and a strike-ready Nike Vapormax cushioning unit underfoot was spectacular! The shoes were flying from every UK and European retailer and also worldwide. Swoosh fans were loving it because of the ultra-comfy midsole and the hardwearing construction. Thanks to the Air Max pods underfoot, all from this series were extremely lightweight and ready for your sudden moves. Similarly, the TPU waves on the upper body ensure high levels of security for the wearer.
We saw unlimited variations of Nike Air VaporMax Plus hybrids, collabs, and originals. Its aesthetic brilliance and reliable performance features make it unmissable for every season! Keep an eye on FastSoleUK for more details.
