Update: Nike has confirmed the Air VaporMax will be releasing in the first quarter of 2017.

Nike is rumored to be dropping its new and futuristic silhouette, the Air VaporMax, on March 26.

The shoe would be making its long-awaited debut almost a year to the day since the Swoosh first unveiled it at its Innovation Summit last year (you can see the reveal video below.) Since then, we've also had confirmation that COMME des GARÇONS has been working with NikeLab on its own version of the shoe.

The heavily-cushioned silhouette takes Nike’s Air Max technology to the next level by replacing the usual foam outsole with one made entirely from air bubble cushioning. The upper is constructed using Flyknit material to enhance comfort and reduce the overall weight of the shoe.

Check out the first two colorways above and stay tuned for confirmation of the release dates.

In other sneaker news, Reebok’s newest Instapump Fury Road CC is its boldest yet.
