Air Max Day is still a few weeks away (March 26), but Nike has already begun preparations by starting to choose the first silhouettes to be released. First of all, is the Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon.”
The shoe was born from the collaboration with Dave Ortiz, owner of Dave’s Quality Meat, one of the first boutique sneakers to embrace the idea of a concept store. The Air Max 90 takes its name and colors from the succulent salami. We find the streaks in the bacon slices have been perfectly translated on the upper of this sneaker. The first time the sneakers were released on the market was back in 2004.
“Vela” and “Paglia” are the two primary colors used, which appear on the tip and the suede upper. What marks the Bacon inspiration is the deep red on the midfoot, under the throat, and on the toe. The Swoosh and tongue have a more pinkish color. On the midfoot window, Brown is put on the eyelets on the tongue label and the heel. The Nike Sportswear logo is red on the label and pink on the heel. The two-tone light brown and dark brown midsole complete the look.
This assembly is mostly faithful to the original pair, although some experts have noticed that the base shades appear slightly lighter than the 2004 version. A trio of laces will also accompany the sneakers; And if the images published by the Swoosh indicate, we would not have the usual packaging, but they will be wrapped in a unique vacuum bag.
The Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon” release is set for March 26 to coincide with the Air Max Day, priced at € 149.99, on the Nike SNKRS website.
While waiting for the release, you can take a look at some that are already on the website or in the stores.
