The OG Nike Air Max 90 ‘Eggplant’ ReturnsRelease: 1 August 2020
Nike are ticking off more OG Air Max 90 colourways to return in 2020. While the ‘Infrared’ and ‘Laser Blue’ are yet to hit retail, it looks like the ‘Eggplant’ might be jumping the queue. And with good reason – they’re looking very, very nice.
It’s been quite a while since there was a retro of this forgotten OG women’s colourway. The ‘Coral Rose’ from 2003 was the last decent rendition, but those pairs are long gone.
And 2020 is the perfect time to bring the ‘Eggplant’ back, with it being the AM90’s 30th anniversary and all. Revamped shape, pointy toe box, and new mesh inserts are among the checklist of cosmetic improvements for this release, which is due to hit Nike retailers in August. Very exciting.
