In 1985, Nike introduced the V-Series: the Vengeance, the Venture and the Vortex. Each running shoe had a focus crucial to runners. The Vengeance was incredibly lightweight; the Venture provided unparalleled support; and the Vortex took cushioning to the next level. Decades later, the ground-breaking V-Series is back, paying tribute to the past and paving the way for the future.
For lightweight cushioning and impact protection, the Nike Air Vortex Vintage Men's Shoe features an encapsulated Nike Air unit in the heel. A full-length foam midsole offers additional cushioning without weighing you down. Suede overlays on the toe, heel and eyestay areas of this shoe offers enhanced durability. The Waffle outsole boasts solid rubber for long-lasting, lightweight durability and traction.
