In this video I discuss the pros and cons of the Nike Air VaporMax after wearing these for a month. I love the overall design of the sneaker, not for everyone, but I like the Flyknit upper and hyperfuse placement. My favorite part is the attached - detached tongue. The large discussion point is the VaporMax air unit, it is something people love or hate at this point. A couple things I like is the responsiveness and how it really feels like walking on air! Some of the cons however is the shoes are very squeeky, and sort of feel like a flat tire, its just such a unique ride, it is hard to get used to, but once you break them in, they are something I plan on keeping in rotation!

When the original Nike Air Max debuted in 1987, it was the first shoe to showcase a large, visible Air-cushioning unit. In 1997, the Air Max 97 evolved the technology by placing an Air unit along the entire sole. Incremental steps followed, and now Air Max builds upon its nearly 30-year legacy with a leap: the Nike Air VaporMax, which pays off the full promise of Air — to provide lightweight, consistent cushioning that lasts.
The breakthrough came courtesy of new technologies that allow the Nike VaporMax Air unit to act as a standalone outsole. Where previous Air units had to be insulated by a secondary rubber layer for protection and improved durability, new innovation allows designers to incorporate the Air and exterior layer into one holistic VaporMax Air unit. And where previous units needed to be shaped with inflexible structural areas, the new unit can independently maintain its given form, with elasticity
Nike designs for athletes and performance first, which is why it wear-tested the VaporMax with the help of 350 people who in total ran 126,000 miles in the sneakers before turning them over to the public
For Kathy Gomez, VP of Nike Innovation, the VaporMax sole was an engineering challenge. "We had to totally reimagine how to make a shoe, as we went from a sort of Air mattress to these unencumbered tubes," she says. "The question went from 'How much Air can you put under your foot?' to 'How much Air do you need to put under your foot, and where?'" They also did away with the rubber outsole most sneakers have in favor of a plastic one made from a thicker version of the one they already make the Air bags with, which allowed them to make the sole more like one cohesive piece. In fact, Gomez says the plastic outsole is more durable than typical sneaker rubber, and even gives runners unprecedented traction
Like most of Nike's new running sneakers of late, the upper is made of a single piece of Flyknit fabric. While the ultra-lightweight knit may seem in contrast to the bulkier sole, the upper sits comfortably atop it thanks to what Gomez calls "swept pinch" edges, which curve up around the sides of the plastic footbed. "If we changed the sole a millimeter, it would have thrown everything off," she says. In the end, all that tweaking and attention to detail means the two parts actually look like they're in harmony. "They have to work together," says Andreas Harlow, VP and creative director of Nike Running. "Whatever we did with the upper had to be in service of the sole. When you look at it, you get this one sensation, but when you wear it you get something completely different."
