Nike is loved for their many iconic silhouettes, but their Air Max collection is debatably their standout lineup. The Nike Air Max roster is special as it continues to balance staying classic and taking risks. Next up to be added to the collection is the all-new Nike Air Max Scorpion, which may be one of the riskiest Air Max silhouettes yet.
The Nike Air Max Scorpion takes notes from the VaporMax with its full-scale Air midsole. This sneaker takes things to the next level with its extended, almost platform-like design, as the Air midsole has a stacked appearance. The sneaker is complete with a flexible Flyknit upper and a stitched Swoosh pushed-back towards the rear.
We’re happy that Nike is continuing to develop their Air Max lineup while still honoring its history, as the iconic Nike Air Max 1 celebrates its 35th Anniversary in 2022. The Air Max Scorpion is the start of a new era for the lineup, as Nike has big things planned for the series in 2025.
The Nike Air Max Scorpion is expected to arrive in 2022 in early October, but the release date is subject to change. Get a first look at the silhouette below and check out our Sneaker Release Dates page for updates.
