A fresh pair of Air Max 97’s pays homage to the 90’s- a time when good music was playing on the radio, and people like me were falling in love with fashion and street style.

Nike Air Max 97 recently celebrated its 20th anniversary and sneaker heads and fashion lovers alike wasted no time jumping right into a fresh pair, rocking them with just about anything.

Urban Tomgirl is hot right now. Rocking a pair of 97’s with sweats and a hoody, or a tee and loose fitting jeans is always classic.

Wearing your Air Max’s with a skirt is probably unexpected, but it works. You can pair them with a long or short skirt, or even a dress to give your look that slight edge we all need sometimes.

Slipping into a pair with a suit is my favourite. Another look that is unexpected, and sure to make a statement. Below I’m wearing my Air Max’s with a Double Breasted Suit by Calvin Klein

And can we talk about this Fashion Girl Off Duty look for a second? Pairing Air Max 97s with a pair of leggings and and a casual top creates that effortless style we all like to sport when running to the salon or other errands.

So throw on some 90s R&B, grab you a fresh pair and rock them how you like them.
