As we step into 2020, Nike are set to drop three more colours of the original silhouette of the Nike Air Max 90. The “Hyper Turquoise,” “Hyper Grape” and “Volt.” All three are reminiscent of the iconic colour-blocking seen on the original release pairs back in 1990. Along with this, the build has been modified from the retro releases we have become accustomed to, to replicate the stylings of the 90’s original.
When the Air Max 90 first released, the shoe’s designer, Tinker Hatfield, presented the largest cushioning unit to date. This design saw the shoe shoot into popularity due to the unique stylings. Each of the releases are constructed from a combination of black leather on the upper, white mesh and soft grey suede. The Air Max cushioning unit is surrounded by EVA foam and there are various hints of bright colour detailing throughout the TPU panels and around the midsole window.
To complete the nostalgic feeling of each of these of these releases, we see the return of the slim, cream Nike shoe boxes and further details such as anatomical arch supports and hangtags matching the accented colour of the shoes. All of this combined makes for a loving re-creation of a tremendously important and influential piece of Air Max lineage that’s sure to delight Nike Sportswear fans all over the world.
