November 20th, 2017: The official release of “The Ten”, aka the day Nike SNKRS gave away L’s like how Oprah oh-so-generously gave away brand new cars. I received texts all afternoon from friends complaining they were unsuccessful with each sneaker drop. There was only one sneaker that I wanted and attempted to get: The Off-White x Nike Vapormax. I’ve had these in my possession for several weeks now and I still can’t believe that I was able to get them. As you can imagine, I’ve purchased quite a few pairs of sneakers this year, but these are hands down my favorite sneaker purchase of 2017. These absolutely made my year.
Let’s zoom in on the deets, shall we?
Might I add that these are also the most comfortable sneakers that I own? They’re super lightweight and flexible, and the special sole creates a springy bounce while decreasing foot pressure in each step allowing you to comfortably be on your feet all day. I can see why these are the preferred shoes for runners.
