A lot of people choose their athletic footwear very carefully and they should. Otherwise, you could find yourself in a situation where you're dealing with sore, tired feet day in and day out. If you're not careful about the footwear you choose, you could even wind up causing long-term problems with sore feet that eventually progress up the body. You'd be surprised how many people who have knee or hip problems or even chronic back pain can trace all of that pain right back to wearing the wrong shoes. If you're wondering about buying some shoes like the Nike VaporMax line of athletic footwear, here are five of their best sellers in that line. Fortunately, there are a lot of variations so you can choose the one that works best for you. Regardless of which one you choose, they're all capable of providing the comfort and support that you need, even if you're on your feet all day long.
1. Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2 for Men
This is one of the more unique shoes produced by Nike, largely because of the way the sole is made. It's filled with several tiny little air pockets that are designed to give an extra layer of cushion whenever a person steps down on it. It makes it a great option for running or playing performance sports because it effectively cushions the impact of the foot with the ground. This can make it a lot easier on people that already have issues with their feet, ankles or knees and for everyone else, it just provides an added layer of comfort and safety.
2. Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit Original for Men
This shoe is a lot like the one that's discussed in the above paragraph, but it does have a few key differences. For one thing, it's a little more subdued than the Flyknit 2. It has the Nike logo on the side, but it's in the same color as the shoe itself as opposed to being in a brilliant white. For some, this is a matter of personal styling so they prefer the more subdued colors. It also sits a little lower than the one discussed above. While the Flyknit 2 is certainly not considered a high top shoe, it does sit higher than this one. Again, it comes back to a matter of personal preference.
3. Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit Utility Boot for Men
This particular piece of footwear is something of a hybrid. It looks more like a tactical boot than anything else, yet it's not ready to give up its roots that come from athletic shoes. As such, it looks like it has components of both and it landed somewhere directly in the middle. It is a much larger, sturdier shoe than your regular athletic footwear. It also sits higher off the ground because the sole is much thicker. You might use this shoe for some light hiking or something like that, but it may not be the best option if you really do need a full-fledged tactical boot. Nevertheless, it makes an excellent option for those that like to go on light to moderate hikes and don't especially enjoy dealing with the relative discomfort that usually comes with wearing tactical boots in the first place.
4. Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2 for Women
These shoes have all the benefits that the same model designed for men has, only the shoes are designed exclusively for women. That makes them a little smaller and in most cases, they are not just smaller from front to back, but also from side to side. Some people think this gives them a slightly more refined look. The truth is, there's really not any difference between these shoes and the ones designed for men except for their sizes. Well, there is one other major difference, and that is the color choices. You can buy this one in pink.
5. Nike Air VaporMax Glacier Blue Sneakers for Women
These shoes go a long way toward resembling the ones that are discussed in the second paragraph. As the title implies, they're a brilliant blue color so they're definitely going to stand out. Whereas the men's sneakers are a more subdued black color, there's nothing subdued about the blue color of these sneakers. That being said, if blue just happens to be your favorite color, then you might have found a new pair of sneakers that will soon become your favorites, thanks to their overall comfort and durability.
