We are back with another Air Max 90 design and this time, it’s reminiscent of a few previous colorways that featured a “cold” vibe fit for the Summer months. It is no secret that Nike continues to push out multiple colorways of the Air Max every month, whether they are retros or entirely new and the silhouette still has so much potential for completely original colorways. This makes the shoe very fitting for concept artists as they can bring their imagination to life an innumerable amount of times. This time, artists release yet another interesting colorway that’s never been seen before in real life. Presenting, the Air Max 90 Crystal Cave!
Although the Air Max 90 is renowned for its comfort and toughness, many people regard it as a staple in their wardrobes because of how wonderful it looks on the foot. The abundance of stars and celebrities wearing a pair across several industries has helped to strengthen this perception. This widespread recognition has aided in the Air Max 90’s rise to legendary status, making it a popular choice of footwear practically everywhere in the contemporary world. After exclusively being used at the gym or for running in the 1990s, the shoe has come a long way. Nike is now making good money from the sneaker by offering several hues. Concept artists have also taken this approach and are doing something similar by releasing much more colorways such as this Air Max 90 Crystal Cave.
Coming to the design, this Air Max 90 features a mix of white, black, and teal hues thus the name and appears to take inspiration from a crystal cave. The uppers feature crisp white leather on the toes that are tucked underneath the shoe’s mudguards. Mudguards extend all the way to the rears and feature black cutouts with teal “Air Max” branding. Toe boxes, on the other hand, are mesh as usual and complement the collars that have a similar build in a similar white shade.
Black leather covers the upper sides that are tucked underneath black plastic eyelet panels and intertwined with teal crystal traditional laces. White throats lead up to a pair of white tongues with black “Nike Air” branding while the tags complement the titular sock liners and interiors that possibly leads down to white or teal inserts with additional branding. Black heel pieces complement the black leather Swooshes on the sides while white midsoles with teal blocks around the Air Units and teal outsoles finish off the design.
