    If you’re going to wear these kicks out in the winter, make sure you’re rocking them with proper attire. What that means is cuffed pants, preferably sweatpants. Jeans? That’ll be hard to pull off, even for someone who knows what they’re doing.

    Right now there’s no better option than the Nike Club Swoosh cuffed pants, available in four different shades, including navy.

  • Nike Windrunner Fleece
    With windrunners

    With that being said, almost every day that I hit the gym these days I feel the urge to leave a sweatshirt on. For those of us on the East Coast, it’s pretty cold. Still, no one wants to workout in something too thick. The best compromise would be to rock a windrunner, and the Nike Tech Fleece windrunners at Champs Sports are the perfect solution.

    The long-sleeve T-shirt is my favorite winter look. Why? You can wear it with just about anything, at any time, and it’ll never feel out of place. In the gym? It works. Chilling at home? Definitely works. At a party? You’ll look casual and clean. It’s super versatile and definitely works with the Air Max Effort. I’m talking about Nike’s Dri-Fit Legend shirts in particular.

Trust us when we say that for the regular gym folks, there’s nothing worse than the month of January. Everyone is out working those holiday pounds off and it seems like the most popular New Year’s resolution, no matter if it’s 1970 or 2015, is to lose weight. The routine you had will be thrown off, consistently, and you’ll just have to gut it out until the posers finally stop packing the gym. Lucky for you, at least this year you can look good while waiting it out.

Today, a new colorway of the Nike Air Max Effort dropped at Champs Sports. Featuring a synthetic mesh upper, the trainer combines the iconic Air Max technology from Nike — which traces its roots back almost 30 years — to the new and modern Flywire. It’s a great contrast of old school and new school, and helps this shoe not only in the performance setting but also as a piece of style. Along with a rubber outsole, this shoe is designed specifically to take your workout to the next level. But in 2015, we all know that’s not a sneaker’s only purpose. Come through with something whack and you won’t be able to style on Instagram. Rock something classic or hot? You can get major props.

With the shoe now available, get put up on game and see how you can wear this sneaker rather than just walk around in it. There’s a big difference. This is How to Rock the Nike Air Max Effort: A Champs Sports Edition.
