Defiant in the Face of Defeat: UNDEFEATED x Nike Air Max 90

Linking up again for slew of slick colourways ?

September 19th 2019

The Swoosh tags in long time collaborative partners UNDEFEATED to celebrate the Air Max 90’s streetwear legacy with a slew of slick colourways.

When it comes to collaborations, Nike can hold their hands up and claim some of the sneaker industries most impressive pairings, with some of the most coveted pairs in history dropping courtesy of Diamond Supply and sacai.

Looking through their well-documented history of creative pairings, it is impossible not to feel the impact that UNDEFEATED has had at both the Swoosh and Jumpman. When these two come together, instant sellouts are inevitable.

For their latest link-up UNDEFEATED shines the spotlight on the 1990 trailblazing icon that is the Air Max 90, framing the famed silhouette in four new lights. Maintaining everything that makes the shoe so special, classic triple black and triple white builds are used as a design base to highlight heavy-contrasts of “Blue Fury” and “Solar Red”, both of which are AM90 staples.

New images of a black and “Opti-Yellow” have recently surfaced, amidst rumours that the collaboration will total eight pairs, with the remaining builds expected to be white and “Opti-Yellow” alongside both black and white iterations of a “Green Spark” pairing.

The first four pairs of the UNDEFEATED x Nike Air Max 90 collection are set to touch down on September 20th, while remaining pairs are rumoured to be releasing this Fall.
