Fly AF


I have been on my fitness grind lately! I have signed up for not one but two races!!!! I am also currently in the middle of a 30 day sweat challenge where you work out for 30 minutes everyday for 30 days. I am feeling strong and focused!!!

BeFunky Collagevm6Cory-Lee_MarksCanada_52217_30cfBeFunky Collagevm2I test drove a brand new pair of Nike Vapor Max kicks recently. The look alone stands out from the crowd, they are super duper light and I was pleasantly surprised with the extremely supportive sole. I can’t lie they are fly AF and so I think I will be rocking them casually instead of on a run. I can’t risk these puppies getting dirty before the summer.


With a reinvented cushioning system, the Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit Women’s Running Shoe delivers a lightweight, bouncy ride for a gravity-defying sensation underfoot and Flyknit fabric for a snug, flawless fit.


Air cushioning provides maximum impact protection from heel to toe. Carved-out sections of the sole help keep the shoe incredibly flexible and lightweight.


Flyknit fabric offers a snug, sock-like fit that wraps your foot in lightweight, breathable comfort.


Flywire technology—strong, lightweight cables that hug the midfoot—integrate with the laces for secure lockdown and stability.

The Air VaporMax represents a new era in Nike innovation. “It’s changed our whole philosophy on how we design for Air”, says Cushioning Innovation Designer Zachary Elder. With the VaporMax, the designers wanted to truly capture the feeling of “running on air”. The designers started by restructuring the Air unit so they could attach it directly to the upper. “That was the biggest challenge”, says Tom Minami, Senior Footwear Designer—but it was worth it. “Without any midsole or sockliner, you get to feel the Air in a whole new way”. In previous Air Max models, the goal was to fill the sole with as much Air as possible, but with the VaporMax, the focus is on using the Air efficiently. “As you step down, each lug gets pushed into the Air unit, ramping up the pressure”, Elder explains. “As you step off, the pressure releases, creating that springy bounce”. After the seven-year journey from ideation to release, Elder and Minami are excited for what’s to come. “I’m super-proud of the product”, Elder says. “This new approach is going to be a huge turning point for Air—and for Nike”.
