The Air Max 90 is truly an “iconic” sneaker model because it is frequently available and is a representative of Nike’s identity. Nike first dropped the Air Max 90 back in 1990, but back then it was simply known as the “Air Max” or the Air Max III. The model’s name was not officially changed to Air Max 90 until 200. The Air Max 90 made its retail debut in a “Black/Cool-Grey/Red/White” colorway. Ever since, the uppers of the Nike Air Max 90 have always been a combination of Duromesh, synthetic leather and synthetic suede. Apart from the colorways of the Air Max 90 that Nike continues to release, it was not so long ago that they dropped special iterations for Steve Nash and Huf, the apparel brand.

It was back in 1987 when Mark Park and Tinker Hatfield daringly joined forces to daringly design a running shoe that would stand out from the rest. Indeed, the Nike Max proved to be one of Nike’s most groundbreaking and innovative designs at that time. The sneakerheads of today also recognize the shoe as the Air Max 1 and the Air Max 87. It was the very first running shoe of its kind, with its heel containing a visible Air Cushioning unit that Nike had introduced in 1979. It was the Air Max 1 that set the trend for Nike to incorporate their innovative technology in the innumerable designs that they release from then onwards. Continue reading Nike Air Max 1

The Air Foamposite is one of Nike’s most recognized models. Both its versions, the Foamposite One and the Foamposite Pro, had originally made their retail debuts back in 1997, so the iconic and revolutionary silhouette has already been around for nineteen years. Both forms of the Air Foamposite had equally aided that generation of basketball athletes and opened the minds of sneaker designers of that time.
The inspiration behind the Foamposite model actually came from sunglass protection. Thus, Nike had stepped outside of that era’s norm for sneaker designs, ending up with a basketball shoe that combined foam-like, seamless, polyurethane uppers with the most revolutionary performance characteristics. In 2017, Nike will celebrate the Air Foamposite’s 20th Anniversary and in commemoration of the milestone, three of most popular Air Foamposite One colorways are turning next year.
Back in mid-August, Nike had revealed that it is bringing back the iconic, original “Dark Neon Royal,” and the highly popular retro “Copper” and “Eggplant” colorways. Back in 2010, these two retro colorways of this futuristic model were significantly coveted. Even though Nike has not had much to offer as far as the Air Foamposite Pro is concerned, but keep checking back to get further news and updates about upcoming Air Foamposite 2017 releases.
