Nike has served its Air Max 90 in a crisp new monochromatic colorway. While the model is a slightly modernized take on its boxier OG counterpart, it still manages to faithfully retain major elements of the silhouette’s retro design that debuted nearly 30 years ago, like its stain tongue tag and thick rubber overlays.
Most of the shoe is dressed in white and accented with small hits of black. Apart from the aforementioned satin application, the shoe boasts a mix of finely textured materials like mesh and horizontally-debossed rubber. “Nike Air” branding is placed at the heel counter, complemented by black rubber eyelet panels along the upper quarters and forefoot. A skinny black Swoosh appears at the sidewalls over a bed of smooth white full-grain leather, while a tonal midsole with a transparent Air sole unit rounds off the clean look.
Nike’s Air Max 90 “White/Black” is currently available on atmos’ website for $112 USD.
