Yesterday we gave you a look at the Nike Air Max 90 Mid, which appeared to have a slightly heightened Air Max 90 silhouette with an added lace eyelet and an inner bootie sitting inside the Air Max 90 shell. “Shocked” would summarize reader response, but truth is, the folks at Nike were probably trying to do something like this the Air Max 90 and other models for years. The catalog shots of what’s purported to be the final version of the Nike Air Max 90 Mid has an instantaneous “ACG” vibe to it, with the heel and tongue pull-tabs adding to that off-road effect, but it’s the colorways as well that sorta hint at the All Conditions Gear aesthetic with earthy tones punched up with blues, pinks, and neons. Reworked Air Max originals are always a polarizing topic, but these are rather well done, don’t you think? Check out the upcoming colorways below and chime in.
