The recent release of a Nike Air Max 90 “Viotech 2.0” caused quite a stir in the world of sneakers, as the punchy color palette that originally debuted on the Nike Dunk Low in 2002 in has been enjoying a resurgence in popularity as of late thanks to frequent sightings on the feet of one Virgil Abloh. Now, things are set to get wild once again as it’s been revealed that the AM90 will receive an original “Viotech” makeover as well. The Tinker Hatfield-designed classics have frequently served as a versatile canvas for material and colorway experimentation, so the beloved scheme takes to its new home like it’s belonged there all along. The purple that these Nike shoes draw their moniker from appears on the mudguard, while the rest of the suede upper features blue, red, orange, and teal tones. The tongue, throat, and laces then tie everything together both literally and figuratively, thanks to a stark-yet-simple grey color and a black leather tongue badge. A white/orange midsole and multi-color outsole complete the look. The model in the pictures above and below is wearing one of each “Viotech” Air Max, but fear not: this isn’t a mismatched pair, and both the left/right shoes will indeed be the same. They’re set to roll out on August 29th for $140 USD, so keep it locked here for a comprehensive store list as the date of arrival draws closer.
