Nike’s Air Max line is a staple in the industry and it grows each year as the family expands. Some silhouettes stick around, like the Air Max 90, while others from more recent years fall away. This year, the brand introduced the Air Max 270. It was so named for the 270-degree air bubble at the heel, a design that seems poised to stand the test of time. One of the first releases of the sneaker was this Black Pack that employed black uppers as the neutral counter to a bevy of bright colors on the bubble. After all, that bubble is the heart of the sneaker. This pack is still the best usage of the silhouette to introduce it to the world, and these will be considered classics for the 270's archive.
It used to be that winter was the season for boots. Not anymore. Knee-high or ankle boots are fashionable all year round. They come in a variety of colors and designs, from fur-lined to black leather or with straps, buckles or ties. Match them with a pair of tights in the winter or go bare-legged in the heat—a good pair of boots is a staple in any fashion collection.
We don't want to confuse the two very different trends of Dad Shoes and Chunky Shoes, but the Balenciaga Triple-S represents the peak for both of them. Those trends are petering out, but we cannot deny that the Triple-S has had a massive impact, and the reverberation continues. Each chunky sneaker released since the Triple-S seems like a weak knock-off of the sneaker that truly set the tone. The year has also seen the silhouette develop and change in both look and price because the shoes sell out as quickly as Balenciaga can make them. It's truly a phenomenon.

Adidas's Handball Top is a real throwback and a true example of how great shoes were in the 1980s. Once basketball and running took over sneaker trends, soles got pretty boring. If a company wasn't trying to inject as much air as possible into the sneaker, they were just creating waves of EVA and rubber. The sole on these relatively understated kicks have vertical ridges that would be unexpected in 2018, while the upper is old school without feeling tired. The Oyster Holdings collaboration utilized muted tones for sneakers that make a statement but don't scream.

When your cute sandals have become dirty, you're going to have to care for them dependent on the materials they are made from. As mentioned above, if they are made from man-made materials, you can simply toss them in the wash. If they are, however, made with leather, you will need some leather conditioning soap. Make sure to clean and air dry your cute sandals before you try to wear them again. When boxing them up for the year, it is best to put them in airtight plastic bags. This will keep them from drying out.
