Nike Air Max Day

March 26th is a pretty big day for the “Just Do It” brand.

March 26, 1987 was the day the Nike Air Max sneaker appeared on shelves, and it made one hell of a first impression. The phenomenon behind the sneaker was the visible gel cushioning that revolutionized the future of footwear.

The Air Max immediately became a cult classic among sneakerheads and hypebeasts alike and, because of its instant stardom, Nike continues to deliver new, more innovative interpretations of the sneaker to this day.

March 26, 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of Nike’s Air superiority and with it comes the release of several redefined Air Max sneakers to kick off the celebration.

In preparation for the big day, Nike is flexing its muscles by pulling all of the advertising stunts to build up the hype. Just released earlier this week, Nike is hosting four “Sneakeasy” pop-up locations for this year’s Air Max Day in Canada and the United States.

The New York location will operate through the rest of this week. It is located at 45 Grand Street, and you can book your spot here. Toronto and Chicago will open on the 25th, and the Los Angeles location will be open on the 25th and 26th. The one caveat to the “Sneakeasy” in these locations is that Nike is hush-hush about where they’ll be taking place. Getting a ticket to the event won’t be easy, but there are ways to hit the Air Max lotto.

Through March 25, the Nike Air Max Bus, a mobile experience celebrating 30 years of Air Max, will hit the streets of Toronto. The bus houses a collection of Air Max’s greatest hits and a timeline of the Air Max silhouette. You can win a ticket to the Toronto “Sneakeasy” via the bus, so keep your eyes peeled for kicks on wheels Air Max bus, sneakerheads.

Looking to gain access at one of the other locations? Be sure to follow their Twitter accounts for more info on how you can be a part of Air Max Day – New York City (@nikenyc), Los Angeles (@nikeLA), and Chicago (@NikeChicago).

Check out the sneaks that highlight the Nike Air Max Day Collection below.

** The VaporMax is hyped to be a highly sought-after pair because of its fresh silhouette and tech savviness. It releases at 10am sharp on March 26, 2017 so set your alarms or you might miss out on the gem of the collection.

Under Armour Hustle 5 unisex backpack Prime Day deal

Backpacks can be hit or miss. Some of them are super durable, but whether or not they'll fit all the gear you need is up in the air. The best backpacks are pricier, which makes sense. You tend to get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a solid backpack, Under Armour is offering an excellent discount on the Unisex Hustle 5.0 Backpack for Prime Day this year. Usually $55, you can get the pack for $41, saving you $14, and there are a ton of color options available. You should know, however, that this is a limited-time deal, and we have no idea how long it will stick around. We recommend shopping now if you're interested so you don't miss out.

 
Here's why you should consider getting the Under Armour Hustle 5.0 Backpack now
Prime Day officially starts July 16 and runs through July 17, so understandably, most people are probably waiting until the official event to do their shopping. If that's you, we get it. However, in recent years, the deals available on Prime Day haven't been much better than the early stuff floating around. Also, a variety of retailers are now involved, so it often pays to look outside of Amazon for deals. In this case, the Under Armour Hustle is available as part of a limited-time deal, and there's no countdown, so we don't know when it will end. It could be gone before you know it or even sell out.
