The Nike Air Max 90 Celebrates 30 Years With A Discrete Makeover

Nip/tuck.

Nike’s Air Max 90, formerly known as the Air Max III to the freakers out there, is right now celebrating 30 years of exisiting. While the shoe did open… er… windows for the evolution of Nike Air, it also became a cult classic in its own right. From Ravers to rapper to emos, the shoe has always been easy to adopt.

And, like all good 30-year-olds, the Air Max 90 has glowed the heck up. The panel scale, toe box height and heel panel have been recrafted, there has been some internal remodelling including a hidden easter egg, the outsole is new, and the colourways are refreshed 90s classics. Volt, Purple and Turquoise are available right now, with more options coming very soon.
