We’re convinced there isn’t a person on Earth who isn’t in love with “white on white” sneakers. Something about them illuminating in the sunlight, blinding anyone who stares, or going to the ends of the universe to make sure not a single scuff mark appears is so thrilling and fun. They say the clothes make the man, but a fresh pair of all-white Air Max or Air Force 1 sneakers provides the biggest confidence boost you will ever have.
When it comes to spring/summer, white on white Forces/Uptowns — or whatever you like to call them — are the quintessential shoe and are packed with a rich history. The hip-hop community embraced the simplistic design of the shoe and made them a staple in the culture. Nelly made a hit song about them called “Air Forces Ones” in the summer of 2002, and Rasheed Wallace played ball in them. If you’re looking for the right summer shoe this year you can never go wrong with a pair of Air Force 1s.
The same can be said about the Air Max 90 and 95. These models have been around for over 30 years and have no plans on leaving anytime soon. Created by Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker, the Air Max line is years of innovation with over 50 models to its name. And this spring, Nike is going back to the basics with the Air Max 90 and 95 in fresh all-white finishes. You can never beat the classic.
Head over to Champ Sports to grab yourself a pair of the Air Max 90, 95, and the timeless Air Force 1 in their classic white-on-white colorway, and embrace decades of culture right on your feet.
