As regular followers will know, I'm a little obsessed with my Pinterest account. I've been "working on it" heavily this year, as I find it such a useful tool to housing ideas for future blog posts, outfit ideas and trend spotting (not to mention the typical holiday and dream home musings). And for us bloggers out there, it's a pretty nifty traffic tool. Last week Kimberley pinned this image to from my pins to her pinboard and thanks to her 1.3 million followers my traffic went nuts for 4 days. Which lead me into thinking, Nike Air Maxs may just be something I need to pick up on since they're so damn popular.
Every season there is a trainer/sneaker of choice. We've been through the Liberty collaborations, Adidas neons, New Balances... Right now it's all about the Nike Air Maxs for me (I know about the Stan Smiths... I don't get it, it's a 40 year old shoe). You need a pair, I need a pair. We can wear them with everything. I'm not all that interested in the bright coloured ones, it's me after all. So I decided to use good old Pinterest to get some inspiration on a simple, but interesting pair. These images are my findings....
I loved the way Joyce wore them above. No fuss, just basics and some Maxs. Then I found the Ultimates, see below. Gold and silver? Excessive? Perhaps, but awesome? Yes. After frantically hunting around the web for pairs like these, I've realised that the owner of these pairs made them via the Custom ID tool on the Nike site (although I did find this super cool pair of mint green metallics ready to wear). So if you fancy the golds, silvers, totally one colours... the easiest way is via this app. I think I'll go for the white or the silver...
