This Just Might Be The Summer Of The Air Max

Every summer, there’s a style of shoe that rises above the rest. It becomes the shoe of the season, and is seen everywhere from street style shoots to the feet of your neighborhood fresh kid. It’s always fun to try and predict what the shoe of the summer will be … and in 2017 we’re calling that it’s gonna be an Air Max.

Why an Air Max, you might ask? Well, there’s a few reasons.

First off, it seems that sneakerheads are more excited about March’s Air Max Day this year than they have been in a while. Air Maxes are beginning to generate a great amount of hype again, and it’s not unreasonable to think that the Air Max Day hype will carry over into the summer months.

Secondly, the Nike Vapor Max (one of our favorite new Nike releases in a while) will be gaining steam by the summer months if our predictions are right. They’re really a perfect summer shoe: lightweight, comfy, and very technical.

Lastly … the adidas hype has gotta die down sooner or later, right? Another style of shoe will need to step up and fill that hyped-up spot, and as it’s not going to be a Jordan again, it could very well be a Nike Sportswear release. What’s the most hyped Nike Sportswear shoe right now? Air Max.

Three solid reasons, right? Just know … if we’re right (which we’re pretty sure we will be), we’re gonna be crowing about it all summer long. Get ready.
