The Air VaporMax represents a new era in Nike innovation. "It's changed our whole philosophy on how we design for Air", says Cushioning Innovation Designer Zachary Elder. With the VaporMax, the designers wanted to truly capture the feeling of "running on air". The designers started by restructuring the Air unit so they could attach it directly to the upper. "That was the biggest challenge", says Tom Minami, Senior Footwear Designer—but it was worth it. "Without any midsole or sockliner, you get to feel the Air in a whole new way". In previous Air Max models, the goal was to fill the sole with as much Air as possible, but with the VaporMax, the focus is on using the Air efficiently. "As you step down, each lug gets pushed into the Air unit, ramping up the pressure", Elder explains. "As you step off, the pressure releases, creating that springy bounce". After the seven-year journey from ideation to release, Elder and Minami are excited for what's to come. "I'm super-proud of the product", Elder says. "This new approach is going to be a huge turning point for Air—and for Nike."

About the brand

NIKE, pronounced NI-KEY, is the winged goddess of victory according to Greek mythology. She sat at the side of Zeus, the ruler of the Olympic pantheon, in Olympus. A mystical presence, symbolizing victorious encounters, NIKE presided over history\'s earliest battlefields. A Greek would say, \"When we go to battle and win, we say it is NIKE.\" Synonymous with honoured conquest, NIKE is the twentieth century footwear that lifts the world\'s greatest athletes to new levels of mastery and achievement. The NIKE \'swoosh\' embodies the spirit of the winged goddess who inspired the most courageous and chivalrous warriors at the dawn of civilization. (From Nike Consumer Affairs packet, 1996) NIKE! One of the most well-known brands in the world and with one of the largest collection around it is hard to believe that it all started out from the back of a car. The first pair of Nike’s, under the name of Blue Ribbons, where in fact sold out of a trunk from the back of a car. When Nike breathed its first breath, it inhaled the spirit of two men. The Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman story is one of common interest. On one hand Knight’s search for a way to make a living without giving up his love of athletics and on the other track and field coach Bill Bowerman\'s search for lighter, more durable racing shoes for his running team. Today NIKE has become a global marketer of athletic footwear and apparel worn by sports fans and fashion aficionados alike. To this day NIKE has designed more of the most sought after collector items than any other brands and has honestly earned its cult status worldwide. Nitty Gritty keeps and regularly updates its stock of iconic NIKE designs and models.
