If you’re not a fan of all black and all white sneakers, then introduce a bit of silver into your collection with the all-new Nike Air VaporMax 2.0 ‘Metallic Silver’. Boasting a Flyknit construction, a full length Air bubble sits down below in a clear hue. A shiny heel cup features at the back, along with a complementary Swoosh.
