The Nike Air Max 90 is one of those go-to models in the Nike Sportswear catalog that’s among the first to get any kind of technical upgrade. We’ve seen them with Free soles and/or Flywire-reinforced uppers, the discontinued Moire series and most recently, the use of Vac-Tech and Hyperfuse construction. The latest manages to one-up all of these with its unique application of Flywire AND Hyperfuse on a design inspired by Nike, Inc. brand Hurley’s ‘Phantom 4D’ Flywire boardshorts. The Hurley x Nike Air Max 90 ‘Phantom 4D’ features those same vector graphics from the shorts that has also been carried over to a series of limited edition Hurley x LDG bike frames that’ll be on display at select Hurley events like the recent grand opening at Salvation Malibu. And just down the coast at Nike Santa Monica, a raffle was drawn this morning to determine who’d be allowed to cop a pair, with no holds or phone orders allowed until Sunday at the earliest. NSW’s 21 Mercer flagship in New York will begin selling theirs at 1pm today so click through to see more images and let us know what you think of this Dalek-derived collaboration.
