Following a trend of nostalgic releases, Nike is about to drop yet another throwback take on one of its classic silhouettes, the Air Max 90. Dressing the sneakers up in a “Mixtape” colorway, Nike pays homage to some of its most iconic AM90 colorways with a hand-scribbled “tracklist” shining through a translucent outsole with eight titles: “OG Infrared,” “King Of The Mountain,” “Anniversary Cork,” “Moon Landing,” “Lemon Frost,” “Untold Truth,” “OG Ostrich” and “BRS Powerwall.” The “Mixtape” theme extends to the tongue, where you’ll find “Side A” and “33 1/3 RPM” written on each shoe, a nod to vinyl records.

Elsewhere, the shoe is constructed with a fresh white mesh and grey leather paneling with “Lemon Frost” highlights for detailing and a cork insole, creating a light and breezy colorway for the warmer months whilst honoring the company’s past releases.

The Nike Air Max 90 “Mixtape” will be available on June 15 for raffle over at Sneakersnstuff, for $169 USD. Remember to mark your calendars.

And for more footwear news, KITH has teamed up with Birkenstock for some summer-ready silhouettes.
