When Nike dropped the Air VaporMax I was tiyad, tiyad of sneakers I want always being £100+ EVEN ones from the junior section.
Nike dropped so many different VaporMax colourways too, so everyone was so spoilt for choice.
Not that Nike did this on purpose or anything, but they dropped around the time uni students got their loan, so you know that’s how most people paid for their pair.
However, I received a voucher from work for Foot Locker, so that’s what I used the voucher towards, my first pair of VaporMax, I got the Black/Pure Platinum/Dark Grey colourway.
The first time I wore them they were SO comfortable, then I wore them for a whole day and walked around most of that day and they became uncomfortable, real quick.
My theory is because the sole is made of bubbles as opposed to one solid block, it makes walking around on different surfaces uneven (it’s either that or my feet are just weak).
The most noticeable feature about these sneakers is the loud outsole which is very stylish and comfortable (for the most part).
I think the only issue I have with these sneakers are the laces, they’re made from a satin-like material, so they untie so bloody often. But, aside from that, they’re bad.
