All-black everything is the move this year. Yes, it’s almost always the move. Black will never go out of style specifically because you don’t need to style it. You don’t need to match. You don’t need to worry about stains. You don’t need to worry about dirt. But in 2015, it’s gone to another level as more and more celebrities and trendsetters are working it into their outfits on a more regular basis. Everyone is doing it, from LeBron to Usher to Kanye. Just look at what A$AP Rocky‘s done with the all-black trend. It’s become his staple, his signature look. And this is the guy many consider to be the smoothest cat in the game when it comes to style and swagger. His music might be hot, but it’s everything else surrounding him that has him looking like a star.
With a bunch of new kicks dropping now at Champs Sports in all-black, including the legendary Nike Air Max 90 and the Excellerate, hook on with the trend. It’s a blackout during this Back to School season.
First up to highlight, obviously, is the Air Max 90, a shoe designed by Tinker Hatfield and one which became infamous for its use of “Infrared.” Released in 1990 as the Air Max III, it was a sleek runner that completely changed the game. Also available in all black is the Air Max Excellerate, a runner made for long miles that features Flywire technology as well as a breathable mesh upper. From there, complete the look with some all-black apparel and gear.
Sometimes, it’s not always about setting trends. Sometimes it’s simply about following them. Do that this season by turning the lights out on the haters.
