This Nike Air Max 90 is Inspired by Fried Chicken from Japanese Mini Marts Release: 19 March 2021
Delivering a fusion of Japanese mini mart favourites and Air Max classics, Nike’s upcoming ‘Swoosh Mart’ pack includes an Onigiri-themed Air Max 90 and an ‘Energy Jelly’ Air Max 97. Now, the main course has been served in the form of another Air Max 90, this time inspired by fried chicken.
Arriving fresh out of the fryer, the mouth-watering colourway pays homage to the Japanese fried chicken known as ‘karaage’, which is normally housed in a well-lit glass display near the front counter of the mini marts. The sneaker tribute is constructed with leather, while the upper alternates between crispy white and golden stripes, mimicking the familiar bags the chicken comes packaged in. Red and yellow accents add some extra spice to the mix, while tear-away uppers reveal a crispy pattern underneath. Housed inside are graphic-printed tongs on the insoles.
Check out the official photos above of this finger-lickin’ Nike Air Max 90, ahead of a release in Asia on March 19 at select retailers and via Nike. We’ll keep you posted regarding a wider drop. We suspect news isn’t too far away.
