With the 30th Anniversary of the Air Max 90 winding down, Nike still has a few more surprises for us. We have seen new and original colorways released throughout the year, but here we have a true tribute. Using a deconstructed build, the pair resembles the OG sketch.
This Nike Air Max 90 features a White, Black, and Bright Crimson color combination. As you can see, the pair resembles that of the original Infrared sketch, which gives them a unique look. For a deconstructed look, it comes with raw edges that expose foam in the ankle, a translucent overlay on the mid-foot area and heel, along with raw materials. Furthermore, neoprene adorns the ankle, and suede appears on the overlays, mesh toes, and neoprene on the ankles. Highlighting this pair, we have Infrared scribbled around the Air Max unit. Finally, a vintage-like midsole and a Black rubber outsole finish the look.

Update (12/4): Nike unveils official photos of the Nike Air Max 90 ‘Archetype’ that will debut on December 10th for $160.
In 1990, the Air Max line took a fateful leap forward with the debut of a silhouette that quickly transcended its purpose of performance running. Younger audiences may know this look like the “Air Max 90”—but upon its debut, the design was seen as the latest evolution of the original Air Max from 1987 and given a fitting name: Air Max 3.
This edition celebrates the timeless style by returning to that original moniker while recreating its earliest execution with unmatched dedication to detail. That includes original tooling, with tapered midsole foam and an encapsulated airbag in the forefoot. This colorway extends the nostalgia by nodding to the exploration and prototyping process that led to the icon’s creation.
