Editor’s Notes: Judging by the considerable success of Nike’s Air VaporMax Plus, the brand’s next hybrid should be just as popular thanks to its blend of past and present style cues. OG fans will appreciate the old-school “Japan” colorway, while newer heads will certainly be pleased to see another combo-sneaker utilizing Nike’s revolutionary Air VaporMax sole unit.
