Imagine the possibilities.
As of late, Instagram has been instrumental in communicating the reimagined designs of flagship sneakers and customized garments. Especially in the wake of the IKEA vs. Balenciaga ordeal, Instagram users have certainly been having some fun with their creations.
While it hasn’t been that long since its release, Nike’s Air VaporMax has been subject to some of these customizations, and even more talk has surrounded highly anticipated designer collaborations on the silhouette. First, we heard about a possible Comme des Garçons x NikeLab Air VaporMax collab. Then, we learned we can expect an OFF-WHITE redesign in the near future. We’ve even got a CLOUT joint project on the way as well.
And yet, the customizations continue.
Instagram user ogreziv created his own custom ACRONYM x VaporMax sneaker, fusing a military-industrial vibe with the simplicity of the all-black VaporMax sole. The sneaker is complete with an army green upper and functional zippers along the tongue. While the ACRONYM and Nike have been known to team up on sneakers now and again, there’s yet to be an official statement on whether this collaboration is even in the works.
But take a look at the design below, and just imagine what could be.
