With the Air max 90 celebrating its 25th anniversary, there’s been quite a build up to what Nike has in store for us. And just when you thought, “What else is there that Nike could cook up when it comes to the Air Max 90?” They drop a pair of CORKS in our lap. With the not so recent Cork Lebron X’s being such a great success and all the hype behind it, it only makes sense to celebrate the Air Max 90 with a similar colorway. There are countless colorways when it comes to this Air Max silhouette, so it only made sense to go all out and completely off the radar than just bring back the 90 in its OG colorway like Nike has done a million times before. The anniversary pack brings us this premium cork material, lined with top notch black leather on the inside of the sneaker and swoosh, sitting atop the OG Infrared soles. The use of cork is on top of the entire shoe including the tongue (which is pretty impressive), all the while using the original infrared color blocking from its predecessor. The all around quality of this sneaker is insane. Nike came correct with this 25th anniversary Air Max 90.
Look for these to drop on April 18th at stores like Conveyor at Fred Segal in Santa Monica.
