A shoe as resilient as the Nike Air Max 90 deserves some level of honor, does it not? We’ve seen it go from its original form to Current, Current Huarache, Hyperfuse, and now VT, and without complaints, the Air Max 90 will likely continue to go under the knife as Nike Sportswear expands the norms of materials and footwear construction. Vac-Tech gives the Air Max 90 a one-piece seamless look, as if it was carved from a stone into a finely polished sculpture. We already showed you the Haystack colorway, which featured the rich tan suede upper, but this new Obsidian version opts for the glossier appeal. Expect the Obsidian Nike Air Max 90 VT start hitting NSW accounts this October! via atmos.
