The Nike Vapormax Junior: the latest word in teenage kicks
The adult version of the Vapormax was developed as the ultimate high performance runner, with a futuristic design that was a bold new departure from everything before. The Nike Air Vapormax junior sneaker has the same technical specs, wrapped up in Next Gen looks that will blast your sports wardrobe into the cyber age.
So what type of shoe is the Nike Vapormax Junior?
The Nike Air Vapormax junior is a serious running shoe developed after hundreds of hours of lab time, but it's also comfortable enough that you can easily wear it right through the weekend. Even without a foam covering, the stylish plastic sole on the Nike Air Vapormax boys shoe is so durable it'll stand up not only to a long run but also to scratch five a side games or a round of hoops. In the meantime the Nike Air Vapormax girls sneaker works as a perfect going-out statement piece, teamed with a favourite party dress or clubbing outfit.
The Nike Vapormax junior's high tech credentials
The standout feature of the Nike Air Vapormax junior sneaker is its entirely visible air unit. This stirred controversy when it first came out, with some commentators comparing it to a tray of ice-cubes. But its deceptively comfortable, and it's broken into segments so that the foot can flex naturally. The result is a shoe that's ideal for the tough, general wear it's likely to get at the hands of kids. Meanwhile, the soft, woven upper has plenty of give, making it perfect for growing feet.
Nike Vapormax Junior styling tips
For boys, the Nike Air Vapormax junior goes well with a tee and skinny joggers or distressed jeans with a tapered leg.
