The Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Flyknit is one of Nike’s most sustainable shoes to date, made with at least 50 percent recycled content by weight. How the shoe achieved that designation can be credited to a creative implementation of circular design principles in its varied elements.
From a new, full-length VaporMax Air unit to a sustainability-first approach to materials, the VaporMax 2020 Flyknit expands upon the ethos that produced Nike Space Hippie.
The VaporMax 2020 Flyknit brings to life a new all-day, everyday shoe that advances the thinking about fit, feel and ride — and raises the bar in balancing sustainability and innovation for everyday wear.
When combined, these raw, sustainable design elements — together with Nike FlyEase innovation — color the vibrant composition of the 2020’s overall aesthetic.
For an easy-to-put-on-and-take-off shoe, tailored for wearers of all abilities, with optimal all-day lockdown, the latest addition to the Nike Air VaporMax family integrates Nike FlyEase innovation — a one-handed lock and release mechanism that instantly secures the entire foot. FlyEase is driven by a universal design ethos that champions the value of a suite of systems that work toward a common goal: making shoes easier for everyone. FlyEase builds on Nike’s long-standing commitment to “always listen to the voice of the athlete” and delivers fresh considerations about how shoes should function.
Look for the Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Flyknit to release on July 23rd at select retailers and Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $220 USD.
