Although we’ve had a cold start to our spring, Nike have imported the heat from Brazil to our feet with this vibrant pack of Air Max models, drawing inspiration from the energetic vibes and colours of Rio and its surrounding beaches.
Engineered Mesh is ripe throughout, making five of our favourite silhouettes that little bit lighter and additionally breathable, whilst the minimal stitching nature of the material means that the multiple panels usually found on the models have been replaced by a variation of perforations and colour tones, allowing the exotic colour blocking to look more natural.
Now there rarely comes a time that we like every piece of a collection but after spending a day shooting these on the streets of London we can honestly say that we like each and every one. The colourways perfectly complement the silhouettes and the odd additional material against the Engineered Mesh works perfectly. This is definitely not a collection to sleep on.
The Beaches Of Rio collection has already hit select Size? Stores in the UK and will be releasing in boutiques like Hanon on the 10th of May.
