Everyone’s buzzing about the sensational new Netflix show “Queen Elizabeth: A Bridgerton Story” that follows Princess Charlotte’s rise to the crown and her complicated marriage to young King George. Corey Mylchreest, who plays the king in the spin-off prequel, shared a behind the scenes post on Instagram that showed snaps of him peeking out of his trailer, joking with co-stars, and dancing backstage in his historical costume, which was stunningly contrasted with a pair modern, crisp white Nike Air Force 1 sneakers.
Mylchreest’s Instagram following jumped from below 100,000 followers to over half a million in just the first week of the series release, so there are plenty of new fans intrigued to see what the rising star is up to in real life. It’s always fun to see what’s going on behind the camera of immersive shows like Bridgerton, and Mylchreest’s lighthearted video definitely broke the fourth wall. Whether he was sinking into his favorite Nike sneakers between filming scenes or sneakily wearing them for dancing shots where his feet weren’t visible, Nike Air Force 1 sneakers are a tried and true comfortable shoe for men and women — and any busy actor who’s on his feet all day.
Air Force 1’s are a cult-favorite Nike walking shoe that can be paired with literally anything (even a getup that was plucked from the 1760s). It’s a Nike heritage sneaker style that’s loved for its durable leather construction, supreme stitch quality, and clean lines. The sneakers provide the utmost support and comfort for busy days, courtesy of a padded collar, along with Nike Air cushioning for springy strides.
If you’re in the market for a pair of men’s white sneakers to wear to your next royal ball, or just need reliable shoes for standing all day, take cues from Mylchreest’s covert Nike footwear.
