Model: Nike Air Max – Nike Air Max 90
Original Release: 1990
Updates: Nike Air Max News
The Nike Air Max 90 was first released in 1990, but then it was not called the 90, it was called the Air Max III or the “Air Max”. In 2000, that is when Nike officially changed the name to Air Max 90. The first color way to release is the white/black/cool-grey/red. Most people loved the red that was around the Air Bubble (not like the Air Max 1).

The uppers on the Nike Air Max 90 was made of Duromesh, synthetic suede and synthetic leather. But was it the material that made the Air Max 90 so sought after, or the nice color ways? People had their own reasons, personally I love the Air Bubble. Also in 1990 Nike released special leather limited edition models, but only in a couple color ways.
Since 1990 Nike has produced some really nice color ways, using different materials. Recently, Nike released a special Air Max 90 for Steve Nash of the Phoenix Suns, also a pair for the store “Huf”. Another concept Nike had done is take the Air Max 90 and put the Air Max 360 sole on them, making it a hybrid.
