Sneakers
From the ground up

After months of teasing, Nike finally gave us the first look at the new Flyknit version of the Air Max 1 Ultra. It is coming our way in three different colorways, but the brand must have decided that it still wasn’t enough to satisfy our need for Flyknit-lightness. A mere three days after this big reveal, Nike has one-upped itself with another Flyknit makeover of a classic sneaker: the Air Max 90.

Certain touches of the Air Max 90 remain entirely intact: namely, the characteristic Air sole construction, the heel tab, and the lace inserts. But the rest of the sneaker’s upper has been transformed into the all-woven, seamless Flyknit, a far cry from the typical mesh or suede uppers of Air Max 90’s past. A Hyperfuse overlay has been added to the Swooshes and mudguard for an additional aesthetic touch. And the updated shoe comes in four colorways to boot: black, blue, orange and forest green.

Stay tuned for any release information for the Flyknit Air Max 90.

In related news, Nike also just dropped a golf-version of the Air Max 90.
