Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2.0 Safari Pack ‘Lizard’ | Now available
It’s no secret that Nike often look to the animal kingdom when it comes to choosing the designs and colour-ways of their shoes. The Swoosh has sat over animal camouflage on a number of well known silhouettes, such as the Air Max 1 and 95, which were famously given an animalistic makeover for several of Nike’s collaboration with Atmos. However it isn’t just the big name collaborations that this treatment, as many in-line Nike products also utilise animal prints in an effective way, such as the Nike Air Safari SE.
This season another sillhoutte is being given the animal look, in the form of the VaporMax Safari Pack. Although the VaporMax is a few years old at this point, it still remains one of the Nikes most contemporary silhouettes, both in terms of the design and the technology utilised. However the Safari Pack helps to tie the VaporMax in with the OG’s, while simultaneously taking the animal print motif to the next level.
So far we’ve had stealthy colour-ways in form of the VaporMax Snake and eye-catching prints from the Zebra and Tiger iterations, however for this next entry Nike are taking things in the subtle direction once again. The Nike Air VaporMax ‘Lizard’ is dressed in a Wolf Grey/Pure Platinum colour-way, reminiscent of the very first VaporMax offering, with a stealthy lizard print across the heal-tab and in-sole. Although the VaporMax Lizard isn’t the most eye-catching of the animal prints thus far, it definitely takes the most inspiration from it’s animal namesake, in the sense that sometimes it’s better to slip by undetected than to instantly grab everyones attention.
The Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2.0 Safari Pack ‘Lizard’ will be available Friday 9th November, sizes range from UK6 – UK12 (including half sizes), priced at £170.
