Today is the big day for Air Max fans as around the globe sneakerheads celebrate Air Max Day. Born in 2014, the annual event pays tribute to not just the product line of Air Max that has revolutionized sneakers, but also the people that make them great.
This year, Nike teamed up with some of the biggest Air Max aficionados to create the Nike Air Max 1 “Master” that sported materials from some of the most iconic Nike Air Max 1 releases over the past 30 years.
Canadian based graphic designer RJ Viquiera, known as @arrjae on Twitter and Instagram, envisioned what would the “Master” version of the Nike Air Max 90 look like. RJ took a similar concept with playing up the mudguard on the shoes and cooked up both a black and white based colorway to incorporate as many legendary Air Max 90s as possible.
Some old, some new, some collaborations, and some limited drops all are represented including:
- DQM x Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon”
- Nike Air Max 90 “Infrared”
- HUF x Nike Air Max 90 “Hufquake”
- Nike Air Max 90 “Curry”
- Nike Air Max 90 “Crepe”
- KAWS x Nike Air Max 90
Let us know in the comment section what you think of these two make ups. Should Nike do the same concept with the Air Max 90 as they did with the Air Max 1?
