[UPDATE: December 12, 2017, 3:30 a.m. ET] The Nike Air VaporMax LTR will officially release at and select retailers on December 14. The “Triple Black” sneaker will cost $225, a hefty premium mainly owed to its luxe suede construction. Stay posted for further updates on retailers as news emerges.

A “Triple Black” Air VaporMax has been done before, but not quite like this. Here, we find the VaporMax once again welcoming the all-black treatment, albeit swapping the accustomed knit construction for supple suede.

The luxe iteration boasts a perforated suede upper, featuring an all-around streamlined look and a new tongue. Flywire cables are then absent, as the VaporMax notes a more traditional lacing system. A leather liner has in turn been implemented to round out the design details.

Last month we saw Nike introduce a new variation of VaporMax, the VaporMax CS, featuring mesh materialization, so this isn’t the first time that non-Flyknit fabric covers the sneaker.
