Before hype was a thing, the Nike Air Max was a thing. Similar to Nike’s Jordan releases, the Nike Air Max range offered the most anticipated releases in the kick game. Years later, the Air Max range still holds strong with the same retro silhouettes being remastered in various colorway schemes. Well, now it seems as though the Nike Air Max range is set to make a drastic comeback this year, somewhat due to some irresistible heated releases, such as a collab with Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack. It’s only right then that we take a look at some new and exciting custom mock-ups, considering many have the appetite for a new Air Max. Here we have the all-new women’s exclusive Nike Air Max 90 ‘Island Pink’. Let’s take a closer look.
A top-tier release by any means, the Nike Air Max 90 ‘Island Pink’ is sure to turn some heads on the street. Predominantly pink, the sneaker arrives with a unique two-tone aesthetic – the base panels, including the tongue, inner ankle mesh and toe box, arrive in a soft baby pink. Whilst the outer panels which lay above the midsole and below the lacing ladder detail a slightly darker and brighter pink. In addition to this, the upper also features white accents, these can found on the lacing, traditional Air Max branding and the Nike side swoosh.
As we take a closer look at the sneakers lowers, we no longer see any pink tones, but an almost all-white midsole and outsole which complements the upper perfectly. The foregrounding feature of the lower has to be the surrounding panel of the Air Unit within the midsole, this arrives in a plum purple color which completely transitions the whole shoe and offers vast variability in terms of outfit choices.
Overall, we think that this new Air Max 90 ‘Island Pink’ seriously has the potential to be a showstopper, and we can expect many ladies to have their fingers, and toes, crossed hoping that this creative custom soon becomes a reality.
