Guys Like: Nike Sportswear 'Mayfly' Woven Sneakers

Looking for the perfect mixture of style and comfort this summer? The woven “Mayfly” sneaker by Nike Sportswear (NSW) is where you’ll find it. These sneakers are aesthetically stunning, comfortable, and breathable. And, the name is apropos: Mayflies usually live for a single day — and these shoes were originally designed to last just one race.

Don’t fret, though. The modern version — with woven suede uppers, caramel leather interiors, and Phylite cushioned soles — will last you much longer than that. Even if you don’t consider yourself a sneaker enthusiast, the NSW “Mayfly” is a great pickup for the summer.

Bodega and CNCPTS both tell me that these kicks have been flying off the shelves. What are you waiting for?
