The leading destination for style

  • "In the 1990s, the entirety of Nike’s Air Max footwear catalog was intended for running, but crossed over into the casual wear. Now, Nike is sorta flipping that script with its made-for-lifestyle gear, outfitting silhouettes like the Air Max 2090 as if they were meant for traversing steep inclines and rocky trails. This upcoming release captures the same Nike Air Max silhouette, but implements a full-on transformation by replacing the usual transparent overlays with suede mudguards, adding sherpa fleece ankles, dotted climbing robes on a wide-lacing set-up, and metallic buckles.

    The shade is dyed into much of the forefoot’s knit shell, its Nike USA look near fluorescent next to a midsole of highlighter yellow. Blue speckling then further accents atop the latter fixture, complementing not only the robust and supportive heel counter but also the lace unit whose cool-toned strings wrap atop the tongue’s misty and internally branded Air units. Further use of the aforementioned pink can then be found on the miniature swooshes and the midsole’s embedded molds, while a dark green lies parallel, taking up the tread of the heel as well as the paint splatters that marks its translucent exterior.

    As with previous ittions of the more comfortable, exposed foam behind the tongue and across the inner lining creates an ultra-soft fit. When paired with the mesh tongue, cut-out profile swooshes and enclosed Zoom Air cushioning, the Jordan 1-variant’s “CMFT” design choice elevates a familiar model into its next 35 years. While not officially confirmed, the forthcoming pair is likely a women’s-exclusive given its predominantly pink arrangement. Many enthusiasts, however, will surely hope this retro is released in extended sizing given its clean aesthetic.

    Pictured in detail courtesy of the Sneaker News team, the pair lets its textures do most of the talking. There are, however, a few subtle inclusions of color as red, yellow, and blue collide to dress the athlete’s logo at the tongue. Elsewhere, these primary tones separate, the warm and cool elements placed atop the all seeing eye at the vamp and the topmost eyelet and ZOOM Turbo unit, respectively. Black mesh then constructs much of the upper that, thanks to its bright white underlayer, creates an array of illusive patterns across the entirety of Black Friday Sale Online profile.
