The Nike Air Max 90 and its peers in the Sportswear division’s Essential line have been treated to mostly simple colorways and traditional material combinations since the first pairs released last year. This latest preview falls squarely into that category but also gives us something unprecedented, as the Air Max 90 Essential covers itself entirely in Hyper Blue suede. Add in a bit of Sail and Dark Grey and you’ve got a simple and satisfying design that makes you realize Essential = highly effective. Have a closer look below and let us know what you think of the first sueded-out AM90s since the last VTs in 2011; they’ll be available at select retailers next month.
