A shoe as classic as Nike‘s Air Max 90 never goes out of style, but the Tinker Hatfield-designed silhouette has been enjoying a renaissance over the last several months — going back to its original shape and releasing in a swath of compelling colorways. The latest Nike Sportswear style to come to market? A two-tone “Burlap” that’s equal parts earthy and airy.
The “Burlap” moniker comes from the tan material on the toebox and collar, one with a weave that looks like a burlap sack. The small quarter panel, mudguard, throat and midfoot Swoosh are all done up in white leather. A white rubberized heel badge adds signature style, and bone-toned detailing is present on the midfoot window and eyestays alike. Furthering the premium feel, a leather badge appears on the tongue. Pink insoles add a hidden dash of flair. Down below, the look is finalized with a white EVA foam midsole, uncolored heel Air Max cushioning unit and a classic gum outsole.
If you’re interested in purchasing a pair, the Nike Air Max 90 “Burlap” is available on the Nike webstore now and is priced at $130 USD.
