It's that time of the year again, I don't know about you but for me, its been such a cold Winter, so I am beyond happy that the sun is finally starting to make its debut, the days are becoming longer, the sky becomes bright blue again and the greenery finally starts to appear making for a lush colour palette as opposed to the dull grey city aesthetic.
Nike has got us prepared for the warmer days by releasing a whole host of silhouettes that have been coated in a rich Legion Green and Palm Green that reflects the influx of flourishing vegetation. Containing popular models like the Cortez, Talaria, Huarache, Footscape, Jordans, Air Force 1, Mayfly, Air Max 90's & The Lunar Magista, so there is a whole host of shapes that will suit everyone's tastes. Featuring different materialisation throughout with plush suedes, durable Nylon, breathable Flyknit and mesh, meaning you can step out in comfort and style this Spring.
The question is, which of the silhouettes in stock are your favourite? My personal choice is the Mayfly due to its minimal construction and lightweight feel, matched with its unique design and spongy midsole providing that bouncy step. But the Cortez is another model that sways me thanks to its clean colour built upon an iconic sneak.
It is the year of the Flyknit, the innovative material that holds perfect structure and allows for amazing silhouettes like the Magista's and Mercurials. So as a tribute to Nike and their industry changing creative technology, we have decided to create a styling guide to show how we rock our sneaks for an array of Flyknit models including the Magista, Talaria, Roshe, Mercurial, Air Max 1 & the Modern Essentials which are going to be released separately on the blog, so stay tuned to catch the whole guide.
Today we are going to show you one of our favourite looks for the Flyknit Magista, a shoe that was inspired by the Football boot but has been altered in a way that has seen them work their way into the lives of urban ninja's and commuters alike thanks to their easy slip-on, their sleek appeal and their undeniable comfort for all day usage which has seen them styled with Acronym and other utility brands across social media.
So we have styled it with what we think a streetwear commuter would wear with it. Featuring the layers & gloves to protect from the harsh weather whilst on the move, the easy access utility bag across the chest and pockets on the borg gilet creating easy access to your possessions and keeping them safe, while keeping your warm in style. Blended with the slim trousers and socks tucked in to create an easy going, 'On the go' aesthetic which all comes together to create a seamless outfit that holds both practicality and style.
This sleek, utility inspired outfit reflects the nature of the Magista's which offers flexibility and style like no other. This look is about not compromising, never sacrifice style for function. The two can balance perfectly.
Tag @soleheaven or #Teamsoleheaven to show us how you style your Magista's as we would love to see how everyone else styles theirs, or maybe you could try and replicate this look with a few alterations, let us know if we inspired you.
