I have been a long time fan of sneakers and regular clothing. After seeing the look on one of my favorite bloggers, Sietske, last year, I was sold. Fast forward a year and you see this look everywhere. I styled my other Nikes with a dress in Adidas Stan Smith Mens the past, if you read that post I was actually headed out the door to buy these Nike Free Runs. Why did it take so long to post about them? Well long story short, but I bought the shoes, went out of town, left my garage door open, and returned to find my brand new, never worn, much coveted, Nike's box was empty. I was so frustrated that someone took them from me before I could even have a chance to wear them once, that I waited for my birthday to come around to ask my parents for them. Luckily, I have amazing parents that Adidas Hamburg Mens allow me to sport my long awaited look!
If you are wanting to attempt this look, make sure your sneakers are very basic, try getting them with one or two primary colors. It also helps if they have a low profile sole (nothing too chunky). This makes the sneaker look high fashion rather than, "I am going rock climbing." Lastly, if you can brave it, don't wear socks. Socks can be a real fashion buzz kill in this situation. It makes it look like you are going to the gym instead of styling them for fashion. If you must wear socks Adidas ZX 750 Femme these are always a great option! So basically, every conception you have in your mind on how a sneaker is used, throw it all away, and go with that.
Skepta is teaming up with Nike to give sneaker-heads and hype-beasts a new collab to lust after. The Air Max '97 Ultra "Sk," dubbed skAIR, will release in stores Men's Long Sleeved and online on Sept. 2 in celebration of the shoe model's 20th anniversary.
Skepta took to social media with a series of posts unveiling the iridescent, copper/rose-gold sneaker design. The British-Nigerian star pulled inspiration from Nike's 1999 Air Tuned Max, the first pair of sneakers he saved up to buy himself growing up, along with the "color palette of Morocco," his home away from London.
With this release, the U.K. rapper adds to the ever-increasing roster of hip-hop artists who also have sneaker collaborations: Asics Gel lyte 5 Dames Rihanna, Andre 3000, Machine Gun Kelly, and Tyler, the Creator as of late.
