Those new VM 2020 are awful! Death of the vapormax
Last VaporMax I purchased were the 2.0 multi color. No new ones after that. I don’t like the 3.0 knit pattern at all and those 2020 look like geriatric shoes.

Crazy a few years ago when the VaporMax originally dropped, you were lucky to find one on sale and at the outlet. Currently, all the outlets are filled with them. Pretty much a FSR. As well as stores like foot locker, finish line, etc.

Nike doing Nike things made the show worse and worse, in my opinion.

Not sure what Nike are doing here in Australia, but we're seeing less and less colour ways! We used to get the same new releases as the US and you'd have a pick of about 10 CWs but now we get the same tired 4 to choose from. They clearly aren't selling so well here, it seems. Giving us less to choose from doesn't help their cause.

Nike has ruined this silhouette. If it wasn't for all the different mashups (95, 360, max+, etc,) I doubt I would own a single pair. Which would be a same because they are nice, but not $200+ nice. Nike needs something new and react isn't it.

I saw the black Vapormax 360 in Finishline today and they actually look nice. Would never pay $225 for them but I’d be in at 150ish.

Hella late but what the **** are these? :lol:

Nike definitely goofed with the VM. Like they seriously botched the entire line. Crazy.

I'm wanting the white/red HOA pair when they release but I'm starting to think they don't have to be a day 1 buy. Black pair isn't moving.

the price will discourage the casual shopper and AirMax purists think it’s blasphemous to put a VM sole on a 360 upper. So I think I can see them hit discount.

Got these beauties in from Nordstrom Rack and immediately took out the laces. Never understood why they put those crappy white safari print laces on them. They might have worked better if they were mostly black with white safari print on them. Loving these though

I mean it's not the first time Nike has taken a new midsole/outsole and just slapped it under well known uppers.

Heck the 360 model kinda started that iirc?
