The time has come, where the wheat tones and 'Flax' return to the sneaker game. They have landed on all your favourite styles; consisting of the Air Max 1, 95 Sneakerboot, Woven Boot, Footscape Woven & Air Force 1 High and Low.
Flax tones are the ideal choice for the season approaching, matched with a gum outsole that features a crisp break with a white midsole. A good majority of you reading this will absolutely love the aesthetic, but we all have different tastes, so it comes down to which silhouette is your preferred choice.
The personal choice for me is the Footscape Woven, I was a cynic about this model at first but when I tried them on it completely changed me, they give a great shape on the foot and this rendering, when I saw the Flax pair arriving in store, they made me feel some type of way. There are too many things for me to complement so I am stuck for words, just look for yourself and you will see why I'm crazy for these.
The Air Max 1 is dominated by a rich suede. They have a deconstructed aesthetic with a minimal panelling and stitching that all blends together for a sleek look. These are an ideal option for those of you out there who love to keep it simple.
The 95 takes a sneaker-boot form. Taking the original trail running silhouette and applying a neoprene sock liner to stretch the height above the ankle. Holding a water resistant rubberised fabric, sealing off any entries for the weather, these are the most practical out of the pack.
Of course, the Air Force needs a mention, they have been the pair that has been highly sought after across the years, they are the ultimate cop for all you Instagram folk out there. What's even better is that all of you or even your kids who have little feet can get in on the action as they are releasing a Low version in GS sizing.
The Air Max 90 features subtle touches of Med Brown that line the laces and sock liner. The construction is made from a durable quality leather that can survive the tougher weather, such a simple and effective shoe both functionally and aesthetically, making these a suitable choice as the colourway lasts all through the year.
The one that hasn't been mentioned much but deserves a shout is the Air Woven Boot, they hold such a sleek shape and fit the foot like a dream. The colour is entwined on the flanks and creates a standout aura that radiates out the Flax vibes into your outfit. The minimal style means they can be a part of your weekly rotation without any hassle.
