Before Nike Sportswear went full-on modular and really nailed their hybrid sneaker designs, one of the earliest ways to spice up an old classic was adding a new sole. What started in the mid-’00s with all of the Air Max OGs getting 360’d, ended up toward the end of the decade with a fairly surprising variety of shoes taking on the deeply-grooved Free sole. The Air Max 90 was a natural fit with its rich running heritage, and when the Nike Air Max 90 Current released in 2008, it seemed like the name reflected the modernity of its alteration. A pending NSW retro run for the nearly forgotten Air Current will remind sneakerheads soon enough, but right now our attention can’t help but fixate on this metallic silver Nike Air Max 90 Current VT LSR. This is the first time VacTech construction has been paired with a Free bottom, but it’s the moonboot coloring that steals the show on this design (especially from a distance).  There’s also a hint of the short-lived Moire variant in the form of perforation gradients on the toe and ankle where mesh let the original AM90 breathe.  Have a closer look with some new images following the jump below, and let us know how these compare to NSW’s more explictly space-inspired NBA All-Star 2012 designs. via Kicks-crew
