We love a Size? Exclusive, especially when it’s a version of a silhouette we often buy. This one is no exception.
Nike Air Max Light Fall 2012 Preview – Size? Exclusive
Both pairs are set to release some time this Autumn and are both amazing in their own right.
However, the grey/bordeaux colourway is definitely a favourite of mine. The deep red colour set against that luxurious looking grey suede all up next to the bright white mesh, makes this shoe the perfect finish to any outfit. That bordeaux red definitely conjures up images of an Autumn scene in my mind!
These won’t release in my size, but I’m sure some of you will be lucky enough to get your hands on them! We’ll keep you posted with updates.
When I came across these and saw the block colour, my eyes nearly fell out of my head!
Nike Air Max 1 TXT ‘Magenta/Magenta/White/NTRL Grey’
The AM1 silhouette always makes my little feet stand out and with this magenta canvas upper, I know my size 3′s would be smiling.
The additions of the lighter colours on the midsole, branding and sockliner really bring out the single coloured upper, making it a shoe fit for the sunshine.
With a size run of a UK6 and upwards, I know that some of you ladies out there will be looking to get your hands on these. From what I can see, they’ll be releasing the end of May but stick with Big Eyes and we’ll keep you updated!
On my weekly search through the internet for new sneaker releases, I came across these babies on Titolo.
Nike Air Max Light ‘Dark Shadow/Blue Sapphire’
Nothing too over the top, this AM Light is a perfect staple sneaker for any collection.
The hints of blue sapphire and purple running through this shoe really bring the various elements together. Without these tiny additions, this sneaker would appear quite boring and insignificant, not these, they stand out in the crowd with ease!
The muted dark shadow and black against the bright white Swoosh make this sneaker appear seriously smart and yet the perfect everyday shoe.
Nike Air Max Light ‘Dark Shadow/Teal/Pink’
Once again, Titolo Knows!
I have a thing about teal, so obviously I’m going to be drooling over these sneakers.
BUT, it’s not the teal that drew me in originally, it’s how smooth and clean this shoe looks. The subtle hints of teal and pink on the branding and sole really help the ‘dark shadow’ upper shine!
Really a perfect shoe for Autumn. These will look amazing on and I’m very jealous of you if you buy a pair!
Wear them with pride.
So, we have noticed that some people out there have various names for our favourite shoe..
We would like to set the record straight..
The name ‘sneaker’ came about in the early 1900′s and were so called by Henry Nelson McKinney, an advertising agent for N. W. Ayer & Son, because the soles are quiet and make no noise on any surface.
So, the name ‘trainer’ came from the term, training shoe. However, we aren’t always training when we wear ours… ‘Tennis shoe’ came from the fact that tennis players wear them, but they’re totally different to an AM, Blazer, pair of Vans or anything we’d wear on a day to day basis. So we’re going to call them ‘sneakers’ because that’s the OG name and they don’t make a noise when we’re walking.
So, Lei and I have decided to write a series of posts revolving around the history of sneakers and various interesting snippets of info you all might like to know.
Here’s part one..
