The Nike Air Max 90 Puckers Up for Valentine’s DayRelease: 5 February 2021
Sure, we haven’t even got through Christmas yet, but images have already emerged of a loved-up Nike Air Max 90 that is expected to be part of Beaverton’s celebrations for Valentine’s Day next year. Flexing a smitten colour scheme of white, ‘University Red’, and ‘Tulip Pink’, the colour-blocking on this AM90 hits the mark with the same potency of Cupid’s arrow. While the secret messages hidden under the buttoned tongue tags are sure to strike a chord with lovers of the Air Max 90.
Devotees of the legendary AM90 will also notice the neat little love hearts that have been added to the ‘Nike Air’ branding on the heel, an addition that’s lovingly recreated on the insoles.
Clocking its 30th trip around the sun this year, the Air Max 90 is a genuine stud in the Swoosh stable. It’s such an icon of Beaverton’s packed back catalogue that one member of the Sneaker Freaker team is convinced that the AM90 is the best Air Max design in Nike’s storied history. Do you agree?
Pairs of the Nike Air Max 90 ‘Valentine’s Day’ release are expected to hit Nike and selected Swoosh stockists in the lead up to the day on February 14 next year. If you can’t wait that long for a sugar-sweet thematic rendition of the AM90, keep your eyes peeled for the release of the cozy Christmas makeover that is expected to land next month.
