Unicorn makeup? Yawn. Unicorn foods? We've seen it. Unicorn hair? Is it 2016? Unicorn sneakers? Do we have your attention yet?
Thanks to the team at Nike, you're about to get a mega dose of enchanting footwear on your Instagram feed. Teen Vogue reports that Nike's latest sneaker release is the stuff of fairy-tale dreams thanks to a unique iridescent finish slapped atop a classic kick.
Street cred and instant Likes? You've got it.
While a new Nike drop is reason enough to get excited, the latest Nike Air Max 1 iD is just the thing to inject a little bit of magic into your spring wardrobe. The sneakers, which appear to be your run-of-the-mill Air Maxes at first glance, are actually imbued with a special finish that looks pink at certain angles, blue at others, and can even shift to purple. Three hues in one? It's almost too good to be true.

And while the high-tech finish may give you pause, take a closer look. Thanks to the recognizable Air Max silhouette, this is a sneaker that you can wear with anything from your go-to culottes to spring dresses and all that athleisure that you've amassed these past few seasons.
Like other Nike new releases, this is sure to sell out quick. While we don't expect Yeezy-level lines and riots (and subsequent reselling), we wouldn't wait on these babies. At $150, they're a step up budget-wise from the Adidas Stan Smiths that you see on everyone. However, even if you do jump on these ASAP, you'll have to wait. Because these are a Nike iD creation, each pair is custom made and takes at least three weeks to get to you.
