As the end of 2020 fast approaches, several of the most popular sneaker silhouettes have begun appearing in festive attire. Now joining odes to Halloween are green and red-laden outfits for the most wonderful time of the year: Christmas. One of the earliest-seen proposals from NIKE, Inc. arrives in the form of a kid’s-exclusive Nike Air Max 90.
Unlike a recently-seen Blazer Mid, the forthcoming running model sets the stage for its jolly accents with an off-white leather skeleton. The tongue and underlays at the toe and heel indulge in a pattern of snowflakes reminiscent of sweaters worn to the office for end-of-year celebrations. Adjacent TPU eye-stays borrow the detail’s green, but tamper with its shade. Elsewhere, branding on the tongue, profile swooshes and Air Max units underfoot complement the pine tree-like hues with their rich scarlet makeup (perhaps a nod to Santa Claus). EVA foam midsoles borrow the angelic palette of the fur that lines the underside of the tongue and collar; outsoles forgo the snow globe graphics found on the sockliner, but sport the same color duo.
Enjoy official images of this Air Max 90 for kids here below, and expect pairs to arrive to Nike.com by December as part of an extensive Christmas capsule.
