If you’re anything like us, Virgil Abloh’s Air Max 90 collaboration was the first Air Max 90 you enjoyed in some time. Shortly thereafter, the “Summer Sea” edition also impressed with vibrancy and a similar aesthetic to John Mayer’s collaborative pairs.
Nike continues to modernize the often exhaustive Air Max style with a branding technique made popular by Aleali May with her collaborative Air Jordan 1. Featuring satin fabrication and chenille Swoosh branding, the latter makes its way onto this Air Max 90. Lush browns canvass much of the upper while the mixed material base shines as true champion for this affair. Aside from chenille, we also see bits of suede and even corduroy.
This type of quality and imagination can certainly help us move past general Air Max 90 fatigue. Stay tuned for release details on this forthcoming pair.
