Nike Celebrates 30 Years of the Iconic Air Max 90 with a New "Sail" Colorway

Slated to drop on December 21.

Originally designed by Tinker Hatfield and released as the Air Max III in 1990, the Air Max 90 officially turns 30 this year. The initial model featured the largest visible Nike Air unit as well as a textured, paneled upper and a multi-port lacing system that allowed a more adjustable fit.

In celebration of the iconic silhouette, Nike has reimagined the shoe’s design and will release it in a monochromatic “Sail” colorway inspired by the sneaker’s original color blocking. The key elements of the 2020 AM90 upper include a faster, sleeker deconstructed toe along with a lower and more dynamic mudguard. The medial side has been incorporated with a split pattern and arrives with the original Swoosh logo. Internal renovations to the pair include the original ultra-plush linings and constructions, as well as the sockliner featuring an Air Max 1 outsole on the bottom. In addition to the model, Nike has recreated the original skinny box design and consists of the signature hazard stripes.

Nike’s Air Max 90 CS in “Sail” is set to drop on December 21 at select retailers and Nike’s SNKRS website. For more Nike-related news, peep the Air Force 1 Shadow in “Atmosphere Grey/Volt.”
