In honour of the 20th anniversary of the legendary Nike Air Max 95 sneaker, I've decided to put a unique spin on the 1995 icon, and designed my very own NikeiD. With its array of coveted colour options, and a variety of graphics and premium details from reflectivity and translucency; I utilized every option that best reflects my personal style. A 1 of 1 intricate classic; the Ice Cold 'ccheng' Air Max 95's.

What makes them so ice cold? Its crisp colourway and aesthetic, of course! Key features include: soft suede anthracite fade with snakeskin graphics; white with wolf grey paint speckle midsoles; translucent wolf grey airbags; translucent ice clear outsoles; and custom tongue iDs with 'ccheng' stitched in white.

I took a classic sneaker and kept things light, fresh and intricate. Not straying away too much from its organic aesthetic, but enough to be ice cold fresh, you can't resist. Breath mint, anyone?

While on the topic of ice cold, the weather temperatures were below the freezing mark and my outfit played along with the theme. What am I wearing, you ask? Well, everything Nike, of course! Innovating for the female body in motion is the foundation of the Nike Women design ethos. Partnering with Berlin-based designer Johanna Schneider, Nike brought a new aesthetic to women’s training through a modular capsule collection designed for ultimate versatility. The NikeLab x JFS Sleeveless Cape is a firm example; it's an extremely versatile outer layer, where the cape serves as three different wear options: open, cinched closed or tied around the hips as a warm-up skirt. I for one, chose the cinched closed option for a more dramatic samurai look. I mean, it worked out, right?

All-in-all, I was fortunate enough to be one of the first Canadians to design and craft my own sneaker at the NikeiD lab at Toronto's Nike Loft, along with the announcement of Nike.com officially offering e-commerce in Canada. Happy shopping, happy NikeiD designing, happy new year!
