Breathability of a performance shoe has been an issue that dates back to the introduction of athletic footwear. Nike has experimented with different types of mesh and perforations over the years, and Torch was finally developed as the cure-all for problems relating to overheating and lack of ventilation. The Nike Air Max 90 Current is the latest Nike Sportswear model to feature Torch, and this upcoming black/white pair acts as a fraternal twin to the Torch-spokesmodel Nike Air BW Gen II. This modern take on a classic silhouette features a Free-90 hybrid sole and Torched upper and mesh lining to product a perfect summer shoe. A pre-order – with a May 2010 shipdate – is available now at endclothing.
