Sneaker culture has shifted away from the Air Max lineup, favoring Dunks, New Balances, and, to a lesser extent, Salomons. However, with March quickly approaching, Nike is preparing for Air Max Day by releasing fresh, in-line colorways of classics such as the Air Max 90.
The sneaker’s design is the ideal synthesis of a casual and sporty look
The Air Max 90 in “Diffused Blue” is just one of the numerous new items that have been added to the catalog. However, in contrast to the choices that came before it, this pair opts for a much simpler and more uncomplicated color blocking, using cool tones to decorate not only the suede overlays but also the mesh inserts, eye stays, laces, and other similar elements. The darker of the two colors is used to mark the outsole and the Swoosh, while the lighter of the two colors is used to highlight the numerous emblems on the shoe. Black and white neutrals do come into play, but only very seldom.
Because of its simplicity and versatility, the Air Max 90 has been a classic running shoe for decades. This shoe’s new “Diffused Blue” coloring maintains faithful to its heritage while standing out in a sea of white-based running shoes. Anyone seeking for a fashionable athletic shoe should definitely consider this!
