This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Nike Air Max 90. Many consider the 90 to be the second icon in the Air Max family, behind the Air Max 1. For Air Max Day 2020, Nike paid homage to the countless Air Max releases over the years with new colourways and fresh iterations, with the collection standout being the Nike Air Max 2090. This latest drop undoubtedly capitalises on the line’s heritage with traits that are dialled up for the new decade. In terms of palette, white is on almost every leather component and technical base, with tech elements appearing in a colourless neutral. The accents also exude modernity with a vibrant blue and red stitch or similarly coloured details such as pull tabs. Elsewhere, black sits at the heel and tongue and even behind a sheer synthetic layer.
