The Nike Air Max 90 is growing up once again. The sneakers are seen here in a hybrid build that pairs them with the most recent sneaker to sport that technology-the Nike Air Max 2014. On top of that the 90’s techy upper is reworked with some leather materials to inject some additional lifestyle flavor. Do you approve of the results? Let us know down in the comments and stay tuned to Sneaker News for info regarding when you can expect the Nike Air Max 90 2014 to show up at retail spots here in the US.

i feel like nike is running out of ideas for the air max line, its like every year they try to add a new twist to it which is really just an old innovation from another one of their shoes in the past. its like they all sit in a room and say "hey lets make the whole shoe mesh" "no lets make the shoe mesh and put 3M under the material so it will reflect" "no lets make it leather and put a 360 air bubble on it' i mean there is nothing new about this shit at all, whats next flywire and lunarlon? damn they already did that too
if your gonna make an OG shoe lets just keep it OG
I like'em. just copped mine from a Nike shop in Tokyo. I'm a fan of the classic ones too. The holes in the toe box has an infrared color in them as well... a different look.
i'm usually not too big on these hybrid models, or "mashups" if you will, but i'm kind of diggin' this one.
I've seen these before on one those fake sneaker websites hahaha.... I guess that's where Nike is getting some ideas hahaha....
i like it... dont get all butt hurt everyone they could just call it a Air Max 360 Wrights and no one will have anything to say..... air bag is kinda big. maybe it would look better with the Lebron x low airbag. but i will get this if it drops in 2014
i like it..... its something that should have been done a long time ago. its not really a 90, so they never ruined anything. this shoe look more like a Nike Air Max Wright with a 360 style air bag..... it would look a lot better with the air bag from the lebron x lows or something that dont take the focus off the shoe as a whole.
NuuoOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo!!!!! I swear Nike and the reditions on some Air Max models. I like the Maxims, Torch, Hyperfuse and the new jacquard versions as well as the Current with the Free-like sole. But that Lunaron sole shit and this, helllll naw!!!! Stop fukkin with ravamping and brings us more 93, Terra and Huarches to the States!!!
@VNTG_BMW HELL. IF THEY WANNA DO SOMETHING NEW WITH A CLASSIC, FOLLOW NEW BALANCE AND ASICS'S LEAD AND START MAKING MORE PREMIUM/SUPREME MAKES OF THE AM87-95. START USING MORE LEATHERS, SUEDES LIKE OSTRICH AND FAUX REFLECTIVE CROCODILLE. EVEN USE ELEPHANT PRINT, BUT MORE LIKE THE PRINT THAT WAS USED ON THE AIR MAX 90 "HUFQUAKE FROM BACK IN THE DAY. (SORRY FOR THE ALL CAPS.)
@sole_serious @VNTG_BMW that idea actually isnt that bad, problem with it is that when nike makes a product using premium materials its usually very limited based on how premium the material is, they tried that with air forces back in 06 and 07 with the AF1 Lux pack, not only was the item prices high as all hell, but the chances of getting the even if you did have to money for it was slim to none.
in my opinion nike should take OG retros and limit how many time they come out per decade. in the mean time bring out better colorways that will be retros for our kids you know. i dont think that reinventing them is the best idea
