John Mayer Names the 'Sneaker of the Summer'
Style god John Mayer had to do it to ‘em. Seeing our wayward opinions of the best sneaker to tackle the warmer months, he’s set us straight. It’s not whatever Off-White colab we’re wearing, it’s Nike’s ‘Atmosphere Grey/Total Orange/Hot Punch/Volt’ Air Force 270.
‘These are your sleeper hit Nikes of the summer,’ Mayer said on Instagram. ‘I’m not getting paid for this, I’m just telling you. You guys are sleeping.’
He’s even got a name for them: the ‘Super Soakers’. If you’re unsure why, sneaker artist Jeff Cole was kind enough to lay it out.
Mayer’s Instagram story has since timed out, but Bleacher Report were kind enough to save the video for posterity.
