NIKE AIR MAX 90 WEEK

Nike is rather selective when choosing their ‘freelancers’ for these sneaker collaborations, but if there ever was a ‘no-brainer’, it has to be Dave White, who has been credited for pioneering the ‘sneaker art’ movement. Much of his critically acclaimed artwork has been displayed in art exhibits worldwide (both as solo and group exhibits), and some of his Nike sneaker art done in his signature wet-paint style actually hangs in the personal collections of Nike, Inc.. It’s no wonder why White’s hands are continually called upon for work, but for sneakerheads, the true Nike x Dave White saga began with the ‘Neon Pack’ in 2005, when White paid his respects to the original Air Max 95 ‘Neon’ colorway for its 10th Anniversary.

The Air Max 90 of the ‘Neon Pack’ (also referred to as the ‘Wet Paint’ Pack) featured the classic silhouette with the ‘Neon’ colorway transferred over, using key details like the grey/black gradient on the upper, the solid black outsole, and even the roped laces. Just 240 pairs of the Dave White x Nike Air Max 90 was released and were available only in Europe with a special in-store event at Size? with Dave White; a special edition Neon Air Max box pack was available only at Size? and came with a special edition jacket and postcard artwork. More of this awesome classic below, so check out the detailed gallery and stay tuned for tomorrow’s Classics Revisited feature!
