Looking for new kicks to level up your shoe game? Here are five new sneakers you'll love:
1. Nike Dia
Nike's Air Max gets a revamp thanks to a four-female footwear collective—complete with a designer, an engineer, a developer, and a product manager. Introducing Air Max Dia, which boasts of an exclusive tapered silhouette that's beautifully proportioned. It's made with a deconstructed translucent Nexkin upper (a vessel to show personality through sock choice), low collar, and a big lift to complete the modern look. The four dots on the heel represent the four disciplines that brought the shoe to life—a reminder of the power of collaboration. The shoe's elevated sole is also derived from the team's goal to highlight the Dia in the biggest way possible, which called for more foam, A.K.A. better comfort.
