Even though the Air Max 90 is well over three decades old, it's still considered by many sneakerheads to be one of the most iconic Swoosh silhouettes ever made. Designed by Tinker Hatfield back in 1990, the deconstructed aesthetic is actually inspired by the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Whether you're a hardcore AM90 collector or you're searching for your very first pair, the freshly-unveiled Nike Air Max 90 "Black Elemental Gold" should definitely have a spot in your daily rotation.
Working on top of stark black mesh base, this Air Max 90 is dominated by elemental gold panels that wrap around the toebox and sidewalls for a premium look and feel. A dash of leather embraces the mudguards, and crisp summit white accents hit the Swoosh and "Air Max" badging. Underfoot, the Air midsole has been completely blacked out, and the outsole is painted in a selection of complementary colors that tie everything together nicely.
The Nike Air Max 90 Black Elemental Gold is expected to release sometime in 2023 in men's sizes for $130 at Nike, the SNKRS app, and select retailers online and in-store.
