Nike's latest pair of funky Air Max runners, entitled the 'Beaches of Rio,' sees this shoe company taking a trip south of the border for some vibrant inspiration.

These Beaches of Rio shoes are the final version of this sneaker and this design greatly differs from the first sample of the sneakers presented earlier. Colored in navy blue and accented with orange swoosh signs, these Nike Air Max 95 EM model shoes are brightly colored fashion statements or great cross-training gear, depending on how you wear them.

Probably the most noticeable element of the Beaches of Rio's design is its sandy sole that looks as if Nike took great inspiration from the grainy ocean-side substance that so well defines this Brazilian getaway. Stats for Sandy Soled Sneakrs (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Warm
