Twenty-five years ago, Tinker Hatfield’s next vision of new balance baratas was unleashed. His desire to place the Air Max as the key design feature was exemplified by the enlarged casing, which not only made the heel cushion appear larger, but was actually shaped like the human heart. The sneaker went on to be a globally celebrated sneaker and certainly ranks near the top of best Nike sneakers of all-time. This year, Nike will pay homage to the Silver Anniversary of this icon in six ways; Cork, Paisley, Snakeskin, Velvet, Crock-skin, and an inexplicable wild mash of colors and materials on a sixth pair will be presented to us in-store soon (they’ve already released in Europe). Stay tuned for a U.S. release date and in the meantime, let us know which of the six Air Max 90 releases you’ll be celebrating with. With Nike celebrating the 25th anniversary of their classic nike air max thea silhouette, we have been getting a ton of new colorways of the shoe. Next in line is the “Infrared Croc” edition of the AM90.
This time around the shoe is coming dressed in a mixture of leather with patent leather detailing throughout to create a unique look. Croc printing can also be found on to provide some additional texture to this Air Max 90. The base of the shoe is done in Black, while hints of Infrared accent the silhouette to complete the theme.
Look for the new balance 574 “Infrared Croc” now as they are starting to hit select Nike Sportswear retailers. The shoe is retailing for $135 and will also be available for purchase online via Nike.com at a later date. The Nike Air Max 90 has been on a wave this year as it’s celebrating its 25th year anniversary. As a matter of fact, the “OG Infared” colorway will be releasing in a couple of days.
With such a big milestone comes a big celebration. Artist PELNYC has decided to create a dope art series to commemorate the special anniversary. The nike air max 2014 “We Were There” project places the Air Max 90 as a canvas in unique cultural moments of the last 25 years, one for every year of its existence. Some examples include Michael Jackson wearing a pair of AM 90s while doing his signature tip toe pose and another features Bart Simpson riding his skateboard.
This creative artistic project from PELNYC will be exhibited in NYC along with a corresponding book release that is sure to be a great piece for collectors.
