Their collaboration with Harris Tweed on a two-pack of Air Royals marked the last time Nike Sportswear utilized the woolen material, and now another model that’s been subject to quite a few VacTech releases of its own of late will have a crack at the kicks-your-aunt-knit look. This new Nike Air Max 90 VT looks superb in a grey tweed that gives off about as many colors as you’d care to count, exactly the kind of look that keeps people staring at you until they’re finally close enough to ask where you got them. These suggest the further cross-pollination of sneakers and traditional upscale attire should continue to reap its fair share of rewards, and you can see more of these grey tweed Air Max 90s after the jump. via SF
Honestly I would like to love them, but they just remind me too much of your grandparent's furniture.
