You’ll be more blue than red when you find out how much the Air VaporMax Flyknit Utility costs.
The Air VaporMax Flyknit is a sneaker that has attempted to take the throne away from adidas’ Boost models as being one of the more comfortable runners on the market (at that top-tier near-$200 price point). With that, numerous variations of the build have surfaced, and the Air VaporMax Flyknit Utility is one of the latest.
As the name states, this shoe flaunts a red Flyknit upper that allows for a comfortable yet form-fitting fit similar to that of a sock. The traditional laces and lacing system have been replaced by two stretchy straps that help keep the foot in place while lace locks help cinch the fit. All this sits atop a VaporMax Air unit and an additional midsole for adequate cushioning.
