With the Air Max 90‘s anniversary soon coming to an end, it seems Nike has slowly begun shifting focus back to adjacent silhouettes, including but not limited to the ever-iconic Air Max 1. And now, following the release of its boro stitch clad DENHAM collaboration and Powerwall Retros, we can expect to see the runner turn minimal with its upcoming “Asparagus” colorway.
From the overlays to the unders, a smooth leather takes the helm, dressing up in neutral hits of a bleached blue and optical white, respectively. Laces, linings, and soles all follow suit, while the tread adds a touch of yellowing for a subtle premium effect. Elsewhere, the tongue as well as the heel are brandished with a new logo lock-up, one that sees the Swoosh cut down the middle and split-toned with hits of the titular green. Alongside, the profile check opts for a barebones aesthetic as it prefers a debossed imprint over the usual construction.
Grab a detailed look at these here and expect a release to arrive soon at Nike.com and hopefully a few select retailers.
In other news, the Air Max 270 is going clean in white and navy.
