Here’s What Nike Has Planned for the Future of the Air VaporMax

Nike capped off its month-long celebration of everything Air Max-related on Sunday by launching its most radical runner yet, the Air VaporMax. It was released in two “Pure Platinum” colorways — one of which included “University Red” accents as a nod to the original Air Max 1 — and a third NikeLab-exclusive all-black colorway.

All three of the debut VaporMax styles have sold out at retailers far and wide, but there’s a silver lining: This is only the beginning of what Nike has planned for the progressive silhouette.

Official nike.com images have surfaced of three upcoming looks in “White/Black,” “Pale Gray” and “Dark Gray,” each of which are expected to be released soon.

But that’s not all. In addition to these upcoming styles, images have surfaced on Instagram of possible future releases, including a purple-based colorway and what appears to be a red version. Lastly, an interesting hybrid sneaker that features a VaporMax sole on a new upper is making the rounds.

While it’s too early to confirm a release for some of these looks, the “White/Black,” “Pale Gray” and “Dark Gray” VaporMaxes pictured below are expected to release soon.
