Tomorrow’s release of the COMME des GARÇONS x NikeLab VaporMax is sure to be a frenzied affair, so it makes sense to have some kind of contingency plan in place in case you happen to take the L. For those who miss out or are just looking for a “cheaper” alternative, look no further than this gorgeous spring-ready Nike VaporMax which has surfaced in light grey/red.
We’ve been excited about the VaporMax for a long time, and with the March release not far off, it appears Nike is beginning to percolate colorways online. Here, the sneaker features light grey Flyknit uppers and Dynamic Flywire cables with red accents. As we all know, however, the star of the show is that bubble unit outsole; Nike has admitted it will change how they develop sneakers going forward in the future.
While we don’t know the exact March release date, it’s been said these will drop for around $200, which is a fair climb down on the price we initially estimated.
