Men’s Style Guide: Nike Free Trainers 5.0 V6

If you’re anything like me you know that seeing the sun is motivation for getting back into shape for beach season. As a group fitness instructor, I go through shoes every few months and it’s about that time to purchase a new pair.

Nike has always been my go to for athletic wear because they always have top of the line clothing and shoes which never cease to disappoint. While browsing their website I saw a pair of trainers that would be a great way to get back into shape.

Starting with the interior, it includes a low-profile Phylite midsole which is durable enough to double as an outsole, a minimal molded sock-liner mimics the curvature of the foot for enhanced support, and an anatomical heel is rounded to roll with the ground.

As for the exterior, it has a lightweight mesh upper with no-sew overlays for support and ventilation, a waffle outsole pistons work with the Phylite midsole to help absorb impact, and a 3/4-length bootie wraps the foot for a seamless fit.

Training shoes are versatile for running, weightlifting, circuit training, sport training, or any other physical activity. I would highly recommend these shoes to anyone looking for a pair that will be durable and protect your feet. These shoes along with more colors can be found online at Nike.com and are retailed at 100 dollars.

Floor length skirts are a breezy, comfortable alternative to pants during a warm spring day. Hitting just at the tops of your feet is the perfect length, especially if you want to show off some adorable sandals! To make this look even more effortlessly cool, pair the skirt with a plain tee and knot it just at the waistline. So chic!

Fun, colorful pants become work appropriate when paired with neutral, structured elements like this chic blazer and nude shoes. Keep the pants professional by tucking in your top and ensuring that they’re well tailored – hitting just at the ankle is the perfect length. Pushing up the sleeves adds a cool edge to an already trendy look.

Bring spring into your office with a full, floral skirt like this beauty. It’s simple, sweet, and perfect for work. Keep the colors neutral for a sleek look and to allow the pretty pattern of the skirt to be the star of the show. With a full skirt like this, knee-length or midi length is the most flattering.

I love the pattern of this top; alternating stripes add trendiness and edginess while staying neutral enough for a more conservative work environment. This would also work with wide-legged pants!

This is the epitome of fresh, spring style. The midi skirt has a floral pattern and is fitted, but loose enough to create an easy, breezy look. A crop top goes perfectly with this outfit, but a tucked-in shirt would look just as cute. A sleeveless shirt works best with this midi so the pattern and length don’t overwhelm the look. Add some strappy sandals or wedges and you’ve got the perfect spring outfit!
