It’s been a massive year for the Nike Air Max 90. 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of the original Tinker Hatfield silhouette, a silhouette that has given us everything from classic infrared colourways to presidential exclusives. It’s probably fair to say the whole Air Max story would feel a bit empty without the Air Max 90, kind of like streaming your favoutire Netflix series only to realise the 3rd episode is missing. There’s always going to be new Air Max releases each year, but none of these new releases can claim true OG status like the Air Max 90. This latest Nike Air Max 90 Recycled Canvas trainer not only continues the 30th anniversary celebrations but also uses recycled materials as part of Nike’s sustainable sneaker programme.SHOP AM90 RECYCLED CANVAS
