TBT: Cactus Plant Flea Market Nike Vapormax, You Light Up My Kicks!
Sometimes, a brand just takes you by surprise and you simply can’t help loving it! And that’s Cactus Plant Flea Market with its deconstructed and simple designs. Although the brand would have stood out on its own, Pharrell’s support propelled it further into the streetwear industry! But how did the brand take its drip to the sneaker industry? Naturally, through Nike, and to be precise, Nike Vapormax!
CPFM Nike Vapormax: Not Your Usual Flea Market Item!
The brand’s interesting name doesn’t really reflect what they sell. And you sure as hell won’t find this Nike Vapormax at any Flea Market. The kicks give off the brand’s signature DIY vibe at first glance. Have you ever seen a colorful sneaker upper without it actually being colorful? That’s exactly what the stretchy grey upper of the kicks is all about! Moreover, the 3D print of “Just Do It.” with the signature 4-eye smiley “O” adds an awesome touch.
But that’s not all! The deconstructed look on the Cactus Plant Flea Market kicks is obvious on the swoosh! The green tube-like swoosh is latched to the upper as if it was a last-second addition. Finally, the revolutionary Air unit dresses up in red and smoothly transitions to green! Naturally, the CPFM Nike Vapormax became even more hype when Frank Ocean rocked them, on a bike!

CPFM Nike Vapormax Goes Exclusive!
Another very, very similar pair emerged later on. This time though, the CPFM Nike Vapormax featured a string of neon lighting right between the upper and the midsole. The best part though is the fact that you can actually charge the lights up with an actual charger! Naturally, the pair was only available in little quantity and was a friends and family exclusive. If you have a few… or many thousand dollars to spare, you can get the kicks for $12,000 only!
Cactus Plant Flea Market Strikes Again with Air Force 1
Last year, Cactus Plant Flea Market and Nike dropped a pretty cool collection of “Air Force By You”. The cool bits about the kicks are the uptempo lettering on the upper which could spell three different words. The options are “Air”, “Flea”, and “Sunshine”! The customer has the freedom to choose from 7 different colorways underneath the words. They could also choose from two different materials for the tongue. The collaboration dropped back in October 2019 and was teased by none other than Travis Scott! The kicks obviously sold out within a short period, so hard luck if you took an L.
However, forget about that miss because Cactus Plant Flea Market and Nike are back at it! It’s never a bad idea to cop some customizable classics. CPFM dropped a cool teaser that doesn’t leave room for imagination on Instagram! The short video featured the rapper Nelly checking out black and white pairs of the collab. The best part is the caption that reads “September 10”. So we should probably brace ourselves for an awesome release next week!
Nike, Cactus Plant Flea Market, and More
If this release doesn’t do it for you, there’s a lot of cool drops this month! One of them is the upcoming Air Jordan 5 Oregon. However, whether it’s a Jordan or Nike, you’ll need a strong Nike bot up for some serious copping. That’s why you need ANB 2.0, the coolest bot in the house!
