In case you’ve been living in a sneaker-proof cell of late, Nike has marked out March as the month of Air Max in the lead-up to the anniversary of the game-changing tech’s debut – today. To celebrate, this Sneaker Sunday honours a remixed icon of Air: the Nike Air Max 90 Flyknit ‘Infrared’.
NIKE AIR MAX 90 'INFRARED'
By Nic Hayman, 26 March 2017
30 years have passed since the inception of Air Max, and yet it’s still just doing it for the Swoosh on both performance and lifestyle fronts. Talk about standing the test of time. Air Max has appeared in some of the brand’s most recognisable shoes over the years, but none more so than the original colourway of the 90 – affectionately dubbed ‘Infrared’ by sneakerheads the world over. Retaining those iconic looks, Nike have brought together the best of past and present by combining its signature see-through sole cushioning with another of its breakthrough technologies: Flyknit. The result is the ultimate modern take on one of the most recognisable sneakers ever. Happy Air Max Day indeed.
As well as offering a sharp shape and foot-hugging feels, the woven upper and cored-out Ultra tooling leave this shoe feeling as light as… well, air. Plus, as we move into the warmer months, a knitted upper becomes a necessary move. Pair them up with pinrolled denim, a logo tee and a shacket to make the slide into spring a simple thing.
