Another Sneaker Review and it’s a pair of Nike Air Max again. These are the Nike Air Max 90’s: a staple silhouette for Nike. Nike used a visible air unit on the Air Max 1’s for the first time. Just after 3 years of launching the Air Max 1’s in 1987, the Airmax III’s were launched, named as they were the third shoe in the Air Max Line. These were known as Air Max III’s until 2000 from which date they started to be known as Air Max 90’s. Both these silhouettes were designed by the genius architect Tinker Hatfield. The whole idea of using the air cushioning unit revolutionized fashion and technology. And yeah, it could be seen too! Today I am going to talk
about the Air Max 90 LX shoes in Particle Rose, that have been launched in March 2018.
For me, the very impression of the shoe is the colorway apart from it being a pair of Air Max 90, one of my favorite silhouettes of all time. It’s great to see that brands, especially sneaker brands are coming up with many women-oriented colorways. Sneakers were quite known to be a male dominant space in Fashion and now that brands are investing in colorways and silhouettes keeping in mind women, it just feels so good! Now, almost every girl is obsessed with PINK and Nike made sure to catalyze this obsession.
This pair of the Nike Air Max 90’s is a mono-colored pair of sneakers unlike many popular sneakers of the same silhouette like that of the OG Infrareds. It has the suede on the upper in Particle Rose, covered in a texture and rubber material completed with velvet panels which creates a balance between color and texture. The Air Max branding continues to appear on both the lateral and medial sides of the shoe. It has a white midsole, as well as the classic Nike swoosh on the sneaker. Not to forget the NIKE AIR branding done on the back of the shoe.
ON FOOT FEELS
These sneakers are true to size and on feet, feels like cream. Giving it a luxe upgrade is the mix of both velvet and suede, which I believe is definitely a game changer. These are a GO- TO sneakers for a lot of people and not only the sneakerheads: the obvious reason being the COMFORT PART of it. The most important part is definitely the Air Unit of the shoe which can support a lot of weight and means a lot lesser fatigue: a perfect pair of shoes for athletes!
Straight cut jeans, a hoodie for colder days and a t-shirt for warmer days( preferably a neutral color or white) layered with another neutral colored short sleeve shirt over. The shoes are classic and also a simple colourway so don’t add too many statement pieces to the outfit and let the shoes talk alone.
Casual sportswear/grocery shopping on Sunday inspired:
Shorts (preferably wide cut) Basketball shorts or Drop Crotch shorts etc., with a hoodie or a t- shirt/ tank top.
Some tapered track pants with either a baby pink or black tee shirt (match the top color with either the pants or the shoes without adding a third color into the mix)
With this pair of Air Max 90’s, Nike has also launched two more pairs in the same colorway: Nike Air Max 97 Ultra, Nike Air Max 95. The new Nike Air Max 90 LX pack is also launched in Purple Velvet/Gunsmoke. Both the “Particle Pink” and “Gunsmoke” represents the 2018 Pantone color Ultra Violet. These are now available at the Nike India site and are priced at INR 10,995( USD 125).
