Just as the Air Jordan 1 gears up for its 1985 recreation, its close-in-age cousin, the Air Max 90, preps for its 30th anniversary with a meticulous return to OG form. Shape, details, and everything down to the stitch is seemingly ripped right from the past in a scheme of classic color blocking. Though not quite the famed “Infrared,” the pair swaps out the ever-potent warm hue with the staple “Volt,” placing it atop the standard ribbed supports at the vamp, tread, heel tab, and the surroundings of the Air bubble. Midsoles, left neutral, match much of the core mesh whose fabrication almost bears a jacquard pattern in close connection to the 90’s own materials. Sultry suede overlays, laid down underneath the signature black leather mudguards, dye in a smooth grey with the blending check taking on a curvature just a touch more round. Nylon tones continue at the insole and tongue lining, the latter of which adopts a nylon material in another subtle nod to history. Grab a detailed look at 2020’s AM90 right here and keep it locked for word on its Nike.com and retailer release.
