A legendary duo now reaching couture status
Back on the street scene in a stealthy black colourway, Nike’s Air Max 90 gets a dressing down courtesy of Off-White’s Virgil Abloh.
A legendary duo now reaching couture status, Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director brings a pared-back aesthetic – by his usual standards – to the AM90. Devoid of “LOGO” branding, this sleek rendition challenges all others with DIY details in the form of Nike’s stitched Swoosh, exposed foam and Abloh’s signature zip tie – only this time around a cool blue tint dresses the industrial component. Look to the sole and you’ll find Nike’s Max Air unit working hard underfoot; bringing technical prowess on top and behind the scenes, surfacing on the street with decades of Air Max 90 legacy in its wake.
