The ‘Infrared’ look as sported by the Nike Air Max 90 is one that sneaker lovers can’t pass on too often, with the newest one serving up something a little different via the Nike Air Max 90 VNTG. Pictured here is the Nike Air Max 90 VNTG ‘Infrared’, a pair that actually might be hitting retailers sooner than you think. Overseas spots like Afew are launching them December 20th, 2012, with a US release date hopefully landing somewhere around there as well. Click through to check out this throwback Nike Air Ma 90 VNTG and let us know if you’re picking them up.

Actually, in this case all "Vintage" means is that they didn't paint the midsole white (which they started around 2002). They left the foam raw, just like they did back in the day. Pro: No paint cracking. Con: They get dirty easier and are impossible to clean. Be careful what you wish for.
Thoughts these were dropping next year? *sidenote* that dude in the pic really needs to throw on a pair of socks...
