This past March, Nike previewed its upcoming Air VaporMax 2019 collaboration with Cynthia Lu's Cactus Plant Flea Market. As the Dover Street Market-exclusive release draws closer, new images of the project have surfaced.
The latest photos provide a better look at the lateral portion of the left shoe that features Nike's signature "Just Do It" slogan stamped in black lettering. The right shoe dons the same phrase on the medial side panel in white. Each heel dons a bright yellow smiley face, a symbol that has become a staple on many of the Pharrell-endorsed streetwear brand's designs.
Finishing touches include a crudely formed teal Swoosh fastened to each shoe, VaporMax bubble with a gradient fade, retro Nike branding on the tongue, and extra thick laces.
Based on initial reports, expect the Cactus Plant Flea Market x Nike Air VaporMax 2019 to arrive at Dover Street Market locations on May 14.
UPDATE (05/03): As the anticipation continues to build, more official release information has been revealed for the upcoming Cactus Plant Flea Market x Nike Air VaporMax 2019. Contrary to previous reports, the shoe will not exclusively release at Dover Street Market locations. The pair will release via Nike SNKRS and select NikeLab retailers on May 14.
Some more details regarding the design have also been unveiled. The pair is made to resemble a handmade creation with elements like 3D puff lettering and Swooshes made of garden wire. The color palette is inspired by the time between dawn and dusk.
