Sneaker Essentials: Running, Man!

When it comes to running and looking good in the process, these kicks are just what you need.

On your mark, get set, GO! If you’re a runner, your adrenaline just kicked in. For most, running is not just a cardio activity to stay fit, it’s a lifestyle. And like any lifestyle, you want to feel AND look the part. Here’s a run down of the latest running footwear from Nike. Available online now!

Air Vapormax Flyknit 2

If you’re a freak for that optimal flash, this is the sneaker you want in rotation. Volt, Nike’s trademark color for speed and performance, covers this version of the Flyknit-constructed runner. A black overlay wraps the heel, while white works Swoosh branding along the quarters. The shoe rides atop a volt-colored Max Air bag setup.

Flyknit Trainer

University Red/Black-White

The latest iteration of the popular running model! Adding to the list of amazing color ways, Nike revealed this beige/black and university red/black eye-catching silhouette. This time around the Flyknit Trainer’s signature knit constructed upper is done in a lush green hue accented by woven black and eye-catching Swoosh branding. While a contrasting black and white sole unit and a 3M detailed heel tab finish the design of the shoe.


Nike’s latest foray into the world of performance sneakers– Volt Blue. Designed to meet the demands of the toughest tempo runs, long runs, and race day, the Nike EXP-X14 Blue Volt was unveiled earlier this summer. Made to dominate the track, the Nike EXP-X14 Blue Volt perfectly combines elements of the iconic Nike Zoom Drive with the legendary Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4%.
