The soon to be released Nike Flyknit Air Max caught my eye this week, but in particular, it was the soles that I couldn't get out of my head. They're like a cross between Jelly Babies and ice cube trays, which is a bit off track, but it then got my thinking about the possibility of fully customiseable soles. Is this even a thing? If it's not then I could see it working in a similar way to the images above, different colours and patterns. What do you reckon, good idea?

The Flyknit Air Max brings together the super cushioning technology of the original Airmax and supportive, breathable and lightweight characteristics of the Flyknit. The upper features their Flywire lacing system, which add extra and stability (as seen on my Flyknit Lunar1+ outfit post a few weeks ago). Two of the soles above also belong to the AirMax 2014.

It seems like everyone's going crazy for the customisable vibes at the moment, I can definitely see the appeal though. It's a chance for adults to get back to their teenage roots without having to doodle on their backpacks! I came across this post on Style of Sport (really nice blog, well worth checking out) the other day talking about the variety of products available to customise, there's even swimming goggles on there! What's next?

The Nike Flyknit Airmax will be available from January 3rd, 2014, read more here.

  1. I am all for customisable things me. Converse have been doing this for about a year now so Hiro got a pair did. Funny because the 1st thing he tried to do was see if he could put the word Nike on them...of course this was deliberate mischief and of course such tomfoolery was "forbidden".

    Interesting idea about the interchangeable soles, I know for certain they have shoes with the zip on/off upper shoe part (not sure of the technical work!) in a converse style. Working in a stockroom with me on ladders and lifting boxes a hell of a lot in the day and I was thinking of trying out running to build up stamnia as I don't fancy spending money on any fancy pants gyms. I like the look of these style trainers, they look like they would have a nice comfortable tread! I move to Manchester next year and the place I'll be staying has some really nice grounds so I may take it up then, round these parts there's not really any exciting places to run!

    They also remind me of the light up trainers I had in the 90's! I remember how sad I used to get when the battery died on them. Funny how it all comes back into fashion isn't it?

    Cheers for your comment too and I like that response 'Katie colours' haha, people have mentioned that to me before!

    The only differences I can see with bridges is there's no optical zoom, you can't swap the lenses and the pixel quality isn't as high - although I suppose they all vary though! The quality of the one I'm using now isn't as great as my old Nikon, it's just not as sharp but I thought there's no point in me spending nearly a months wages on a camera when I could use the money on things better needed. This camera has a quality video though! I would like to do vlogs or record speed drawings but I feel a bit too shy for that just yet!

  5. I like these soles! I like the pastel colors. I've never been able to wear Nikes, they just don't fit me right, but I haven't tried them on in a few years. I think I'll give them another shot, because I do like their design over most trainers.

  6. Pretty snappy! I really like the color, especially the soles! I think if I was to customize a pair I'd keep it more simple, though.
