ACRONYM® x Nike to Release the Air VaporMax Moc 2 in "Thirsty Bandit"


It seems like every 365 days, ACRONYM® co-founder Errolson Hugh and Nike join forces to reimagine a distinct sneaker model (the Lunar Force 1 in 2015, the Air Presto in 2016, and the AF1 Downtown in 2017). Continuing this partnership into 2018, the streetwear technician is back putting his own spin on yet another silhouette; this time with a futuristic touch and pattern-heavy design dressing up the Air VaporMax Moc 2.

Towards the end of March, three colorways of the ACRONYM® x Nike Air VaporMax Moc 2 surfaced the Web accompanied by a Western-esque trailer starring Hugh and John Mayer. Initially released on, the three ACRONYM® x Nike Air VaporMax iterations also received Nike-official release dates. While the "Johnny’s Icy Passage" and "The Illusional 'Ja" have previously been unveiled, the Sail/Cargo Khaki/Dark Stucco colorway (also referred to as "Thirsty Bandit") will soon be available at select Nike retailers on May 15. Peep the trailer below if you haven't already, and get ready to cop the final hue of the VaporMax Moc 2 in the coming weeks.
