Volcano-Inspired Sneakers

Nike Updated Its 'Air VaporMax CS' Model with a Fiery Colorway

— September 15, 2017 — Fashion
Nike's well-loved 'Air VaporMax CS' model recently received an update, which makes use of a myriad of warm hues that are made to represent the molten lava that comes from volcanoes.

With a synthetic material that makes them easy to clean and durable, the sneakers can be worn well into the fall, without one having to be worried about damaging them. To make the sneakers more comfortable and breathable, Nike uses a soft mesh-like material on certain parts of the uppers as well, which also helps to contrast the rest of the vivid colorway.

Complementing the orange, burgundy and black uppers is a transparent sole that's a subtle hue of dark yellow, which contributes to the futuristic design.
Trend Themes
1. Volcanic Colorways - There may be opportunities for other brands to experiment with natural disaster-inspired colorways on their products, especially sneakers.
2. Sustainable Synthetic Materials - Nike's use of synthetic materials for its sneakers highlights a trend towards durable and eco-friendly shoe production.
3. Futuristic Design - The 'Air VaporMax CS' model's transparent sole and vibrant colorway may inspire other brands to create futuristic-looking footwear that also complements active lifestyles.
Industry Implications
1. Athletic Footwear - The vibrant colorway and synthetic materials used in the 'Air VaporMax CS' model offer opportunities for athletic footwear brands to innovate in color and sustainability.
2. Fashion - The futuristic design of the 'Air VaporMax CS' model can also offer inspiration to fashion brands that are looking to experiment with bold colors and unique silhouettes.
3. Outdoor Gear - The durable and easy-to-clean synthetic materials used for the 'Air VaporMax CS' model could also be applied to outdoor gear like hiking boots and rain jackets.
