Nike Air Max 90 “Infrared” Coming in 2015

Jan 7, 2015 | Matt Halfhill |



The news of a Nike Air Max 90 “Infrared” 2015 release shouldn’t come as a major surprise to many, but we’ll take it no matter what.

We have just confirmed with a solid source that indeed the Nike Air Max 90 “Infrared” will release in original form in 2015 as the classic Air Max shoe celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.  The source also dropped a hint that we should expect several interesting iterations of the Infrared 90s in 2015 with some uber-limited drops that we should be excited to see soon.

For those not familiar with the history of the Nike Air Max 90, here are some quick facts.  The AM90 was originally released in 1990 as the Nike Air Max III.  When the shoe was retroed just a few years after its debut as Nike’s premier running sneaker, it took on the Nike Air Max 90 title.  The Air Max 90 was designed by legendary designer Tinker Hatfield and was the first shoe in Nike’s arsenal to sport the Infrared colorway despite many people who associate the color being first seen on the Air Jordan 6 (also designed by Tinker).
