It’s hard to believe the Nike Air Max 90 is 24 years old this year. With every passing year we seem to see new iterations of the classic running shoe turning up from Nike. Late last year we got excited for the Air Max 90 Sneakerboot and to start us off for 2014, we have the Nike Air Max 90 Jacquard. The guys at Nike have the official word for us:
“A traditional and age-old method of craft veneer’s this version of the Air Max 90. Originating in the 1800s, the jacquard weaving process weaves four coloured yarns through a black base allowing Nike designers to control which colours are expressed on the surface. The jacquard process is very detailed and capable of weaving patterns on top of patterns, allowing for the traditional panels and overlays of the Air Max 90 to be replaced by a single piece of fabric. The one-piece upper is lighter and more flexible than the original and pairs perfectly with a natural motion outsole for a visible emphasis on movement. The Air Max 90 Jacquard is Air Max crafted like never before”.
