One of the most popular Nike running shoes of all time is the Nike Air Max 90. The original release over 20 years ago used a eye-opening “Infrared” colorway that had never been seen on a running shoe before that time, and in a way, it seemed to be the turning point in running shoe colorways. Bright colors have become synonymous with running shoes, moving from subtle accents to complete tonal makeups over the years. However, with a sneaker like the Air Max 90 that has turned from performance to casual comfort over time, more reserved color choices are still a welcome addition to any sneaker lover’s closet.

In 2004 a suede and mesh version of the Air Max 90 was released with Obsidian, Stealth Grey and Midnight Navy coloring. Today we have a sneak peek at an upcoming summer colorway that might serve as a replacement for those that missed out on the previous release. With the Air Max 90, the labeling on the outer heel and mud guard have become defining design elements, for this familiar colorway the materials have been switched up to make things interesting.

While you wait for this colorway to drop, be sure to check out the other variations of the Nike Air Max 90.
