The Nike Air Max 90 celebrated 30 years of excellence in 2020. Tinker Hatfield expanded on the impact of the Nike Air Max 1 by exposing the Air Max unit in a more intense way as the midsole and mudguard placed a bigger influence on the shoe’s technology. The heel tab was another addition that has since become an iconic staple for the brand and the shoe. As the AM90 looks to the next 30 years, a grail for AM90 collectors is coming back.
Dave’s Quality Meats and Nike teamed up in 2004 and dropped the DQM x Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon” inspired by Dave Ortiz’s boutique modeled after a butcher shop. The shoe represents the different stages of the meat being cooked across the shoe as the perfect embodiment of bacon.
The Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon” returns on Air Max Day on March 26, 2021, on SNKRS and select retailers. Keep it locked on the sneaker release dates page for information on upcoming drops.
