The Perfect Sneaker

Pick your palette: The Air Max comes in shades both subtle and electric.


Manolo, Christian, Jimmy … Nike? The label’s iconic Air Max sneakers—which made their debut in eye-catching red and white in 1987—won’t take your look to towering heights like those other brands. But they will do something arguably more impressive: add a layer of effortless, polished fun to any weekend look while keeping you utterly comfortable at the same time. With slim cropped trousers and a crisp button-down or a graphic mini and a slouchy sweater, these are the shoes to wear when you need to hit the farmers’ market, meet friends for dinner and stop by an after-hours party. Let’s see a six-inch heel do that.
