Available Now // This Nike Air VaporMax 2019 Honors Nike’s “Blue Ribbon Sports” Past
Two iconic Nike colors collide.
Before Nike was Nike, they were known as Blue Ribbon Sports. And while the name wasn’t very marketable back then, a subtle throwback name drop today can turn any sneaker into an instant must-have for any hardcore Nike head.
Sure, the BRS branding on the insoles of this VaporMax 2019 makes it an official love letter to the brand’s heritage, but its use of color is just as important. The obvious use of blue harkens back to the original brand name and colors, but the addition of orange on the VaporMax sole unit, underlays and heel pulls bring the story full-circle. It, of course, represents the iconic orange shoe boxes that have been housing Swoosh-covered kicks for over 40 years.
A must-have for any Nike connoisseur, pairs are available right now — and selling out fast — right here on Nike.com for $190.
