Since the Nike Air Max 1 first debuted in 1987, a community of Air Max collectors has emerged across the globe. While plenty of their pairs will be worn to scraps, some will be passed down to the next generation. With that lineage in mind, this Air Max 90 colourway employs patchwork graphics and repurposed materials to highlight sustainable design practices that look to the future.Celebrate Air Max heritage with a look that blends vintage aesthetics with forward-thinking design methods.
The Nike Air Max 90 Scrap offers a playful patchwork upper that mixes everything from earthy shades of brown and gray to elegant navy and vibrant red.The make-up features a mix of fabrics that would otherwise be discarded, and utilises patchwork patterns that make the most of every thread. Woven labels and graphics underscore the style's handcrafted feel, while detachable heel tabs add a unique element of customisation.Collars add further to the cobbled-together ethos with a rough-hewn, unsealed edge build that’s somewhat reminiscent of Virgil Abloh‘s Off-White™ x Nike Air Max 90s, and simple white midsoles with a gray Air Max unit sit atop recycled rubber outsoles to round off the look.
The Nike SB Dunk Pro QS What The Paul celebrates the Swoosh’s longstanding partnership with Paul Rodriguez Jr., the first skateboarder to land his own signature Nike shoe. And while it may incorporate parts from his recent Dunk High — specifically the outsole, dubrae, and lateral quarter panel — the whole picture is more replete with DNA from Rodriguez’s earlier signatures. For instance, the toe of the right foot sports Elephant prints like the J-Rod, its greyscale look clashing with the iridescent Swoosh pulled directly from the P-Rod 2’s “PlayStation” colorway. The deep yellow check of the P-Rod 1 “Hemp” sits opposite, adding to an already extensive set of references.
