A Stylish Way To Wear The Nike Vapormax

Brett Holtz, VP of Running Footwear for Nike said it best, "The Nike Air VaporMax is really the intersection of performance and style".  I couldn't agree more--aside from being known for its revolutionary technology, the Nike Air VaporMax is also recognized for its styling versatility.  The sneaker looks just as dope with a pair of trousers as it does with a pair of track pants.

The Air VaporMax is the perfect cross between being fashionable and functional.  The aesthetic of the sneaker is very modern; the silhouette is sleek and lightweight, which is what I feel helps give it the ability to crossover from sporty to sophisticated looks with ease. In its simplest form, its a performance runner, so the advanced Air cushioning technology makes the shoe incredibly comfortable--hence the perfect outfit combo.

The Triple Black colorway is simple yet bold, and works well with different looks. Since the VaporMax is so narrow, I like to style it with boxy silhouettes up-top and complement with a slim or tapered pant. For this look I wore an oversized turtleneck with a pair of slim-fit trousers. As I stated in my last post, even the simplest details like a pair of dress socks can elevate a sporty sneaker and make it more sophisticated.

A shearling coat is a real stand-out piece and can definitely tie a look together.

I've seen the VaporMax styled with jeans, culottes, sweats, and the like.  I love to see how creative others get with their looks. It's become my go-to sneaker for when I'm crafting an outfit thats both comfortable and fashion-forward. Needless to say, this sneaker is definitely a closet staple for the style-savvy and athletes alike.
