Nike’s Efforts For Environmental Sustainability

Although sneakers are a joy to many, they’re not so good for the environment. The Major problem with sneakers are the plastics, stitching, and glues used which is a health hazard for wildlife and their habitats.

After we realized that plastic, a non-biodegradable material, was great for performance sneakers. We couldn’t get enough of it and today it is used in almost every performance sneaker.

In 2019 alone, 20 Billion shoes were sold with a lot of them being discarded improperly. As a result, they end up in the seas and oceans which chokes wildlife and litters their habitats.

Nike’s “Move to Zero” campaign was started to represent Nike as a socially responsible firm and reduce carbon emissions and plastic wastage significantly.

So far, they’ve done a great job especially with sneakers such as the Nike Space Hippie line up. All of them are made up of at least 50% recycled materials. The Nike VaporMax previously used Flyknit technology that used recycled polyester but it wasn’t too progressive.

The 2020 lineup however, such as the Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Dark Grey includes at least 50% recycled materials.

Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit 2020| Technology & Design

The Nike Air VaporMax 2020 is one of Nike’s most “Green” sneakers ever. It builds upon the characteristics of the ‘Space Hippie’ line up and goes even further.

Although Air units since 2008 contained 50% recycled materials. The Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Dark Grey for example will have a full length air unit containing 75% recycled content. Not only is this better for the environment, it’s comfier too!

The Flyknit yarn is made up of 67% post-industrial recycled content including water bottles and shirts. The tongue is made out of padding that is 80% recycled materials while the sock liner made of 50% recycled content.

60% recycled TPU and soles made out of Nike Grind make this sneaker as ‘green’ as they come.

Before we take a detailed look at the Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Dark Grey, let’s check out some similar sneakers. By assessing their current resale values, we can estimate resell for the Dark Grey colorway.

Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Summit White

From StockX

Retail Price: $220

Peak Resell: $350

Release Date: 08/06/2020

Colorway: White/Summit White-Multi Color

The Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Summit White features a light grey Flyknit upper with a matching lock strap. A white ‘Swoosh’ and matching Flyease locking system blends in with the rest of the upper. A full length TPU and marbleized heel finishes off the design.

On StockX, these aren’t very profitable with an average selling price of $240. At peak resale prices, gross profits are around $130. I believe the Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Dark Grey will have better resale because of the bolder color tones.

Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Iron Grey

From StockX

Retail Price: $220

Peak Resell: $370

Release Date: 08/24/2020

Colorway: Iron Grey/White-Multi Color

The Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Iron Grey features a grey Flyknit upper with multi colored stitching. A white swoosh provides contrast while a vibrant yellow marbleized heel piece makes the sneaker pop. A full length TPU made up of recycled content completes the design.

Although these aren’t very profitable on average either, resale prices on StockX are picking up. The last sale was for $260 which is a gross profit of $40. At peak resale prices, profits are as high as $150.

Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Smoke Grey

From StockX

Retail Price: $250

Peak Resell: $400

Release Date: 07/04/2020

Colorway: Smoke Grey

The Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Smoke Grey features a grey Flyknit upper with multi colored stitching. A white swoosh and red heel release provides contrast while a marbleized heel piece and full length TPU finishes off the design.

These sneakers look the most similar to the Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Dark Grey and I believe resale will be very similar as well.

On StockX, the average selling price is $270 which is an average gross profit of $20. At peak resale prices, profits are as high as $150 per pair.

Nike’s most advanced silhouette is back in one of its darkest tones yet. The Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Dark Grey features a blacked-out Flyknit upper with hints of multi colored stitching that’s constructed with a recycled yarn.

A grey Flyease lacing system matches the rest of the dark color tone while a subtle grey ‘swoosh’ covers the sides of each sneaker. An enchanting dark marbleized heel sits atop a full length VaporMax air unit constructed with a recycled TPU that finishes off the design.

Estimated Resell

Although the Nike Air VaporMax sneakers haven’t been reselling too well because of high production numbers. I believe the dark grey colorway is fairly anticipated and will sell out fast.

Since the retail price is so high at $220, I do not recommend selling on StockX because of the service fees. If you can sell on eBay, you’ll receive a service fee waiver which may help in securing higher profits.

By using my estimated resell prediction of $270, I believe profits of around $50 are possible. You wouldn’t want to hold on to these for long however as the VaporMax sneakers tend to lose value over time.

Nike Air VaporMax 2020 Dark Grey Where to Buy

You can buy the Vapor Max colorway for retail prices at select retailers and Nike.com on September 10th at 9 AM CET/3 AM ET.
