The twist here is that these are made to perfectly go with your sneakers, specifically the Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit "Day to Night" collection. The "Day to Night" band collection is created to match Nike's Air VaporMax Flyknit shoes...
Nike says each of these four colors is inspired by a shade of the sky, from dawn to dusk. Nike Sport Bands are crafted from a strong, flexible fluoroelastomer material that is lightweight and perforated for ventilation and sweat management. The original Apple Watch Nike+ Edition, for example, which was introduced as a premium, fitness-centric variant of the Apple Watch Series 2, was unveiled a year ago at Apple's iPhone 7 launch event. According to Nike, the color options are inspired from the various changing shades of the sky as it shifts between dusk to dawn. For now, it looks like there are no bundling discounts for purchasing the band and sneakers together. This marks the first time Nike has directly paired Watch bands with a shoe line.
If you're interested in checking it out for yourself, be sure to know that you will be able to purchase the new Nike Apple Watch Sports bands for $49.00 each starting June 1.
Nike Unveils VaporMax Flyknit Apple Watch Bands
Nike is marketing these new bands for the Apple Watch Nike+ but given that there's no major difference between that variant and others, the bands will be compatible with nearly every other Apple Watch model.
If you're looking to pick up a pair of the premium Air VaporMax sneakers to match, Nike claims that those, too, will be available beginning on June 1st for $190.
This is a result of the expanding partnership between Apple and Nike. You can check out the new colors in the images provided. What are your thoughts on the new Nike Apple Watch bands? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
