AIR MAX 90
As the first Air Max of a brand new decade, the Air Max 90 reflected the rapid but seismic shifts in the landscape that occurred between the release of the first and second Air Max models. Although the appetite for ‘extreme’ aesthetics was still just around the next corner, by 1990 tastes in sportswear had embraced comprehensively bolder looks.
The Air Max 90 responded by increasing the volume contained in the Air units, and the size of the visible Air window to go along with it. A busier look, featuring TPU ribbing, and paneled overlays took a more aggressive stance than its predecessor, as did a plethora of vivid colorways.
A 'USA' edition of the Air Max 90 satiates this appetite for boldness, with the livery of US Olympic athletes. The trips to the medal stand may be put off by a year, but as well as precious metals compliment these colors, they look just as good on their own.
