History of the Nike Air Max

air maxOne of the world’s most iconic trainer brands, Nike have been leading innovation in sports footwear for years – the Air Max 90 being no exception.

The Air Max 90 is a perfect mix between a trainer for sportswear and a fashionable trainer. The versatility of this trainer means they can be worn with a lot of different outfits and for numerous occasions. Although there are many different colourways of this trainer, we have decided to pick the Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 Essential trainers in white to style 3 different ways.

Wearing completely white trainers is a style that can be tricky to get right. However, if you do it properly, wearing entirely white Air Max 90’s can be the perfect way to keep your outfit sleek and stylish.

Nine to Five

The white Air Max 90 is a style classic that lends itself to smart casual, lightweight tailoring and office life. Trainers can balance tailoring and bring more focus to the rest of your tailored outfit. This will add a ‘sports luxe’ feel to your usual workwear.

Keep it contemporary with a navy suit jacket and trousers, crisp white shirt – and your white Air Max 90’s.

Summer Casual

The versatile nature of the white Air Max 90 means it’s easy to style them with various pieces – including shorts, which is perfect for when you want to create your everyday summer look.

Wear your Air Max 90’s with a pair of white shorts and a short sleeved oxford shirt – any colour will suit this outfit as we have kept the rest simple. We have chosen this pastel yellow colour to stay on trend this season. Minimise the space between your trainers and shorts by wearing plain (clean) white ankle socks opposed to trainer socks.

Layer up for those colder (typically British) days with a t shirt underneath your oxford shirt.

Workout Ready

The Air Max 90 is famous for popularising the visible Max Air unit and usually used more for a fashionable trainer. However, the Max Air unit and foam insole do provide superb cushioning and maximum impact protection, giving the Air Max 90 performance value – the perfect shoe for working out, whilst still looking stylish.

Wear your Air Max 90’s with a pair of gym shorts, a sports t shirt and don’t forget your gym bag!
