Nike Air Max 90 Royal

Nike is rolling out the red carpet for one of its most iconic and beloved silhouettes: the NIKE AIR MAX 90 ROYAL is the latest premium, luxury iteration of the popular runner.

The Nike Air Max 90 Royal will be available in two lush-looking colourways, a monochromatic black and a cool grey. But what is it exactly that makes this popular runner ‘Royal’? A seamless upper fitted with a new synthetic suede that is offset against Vachetta Tan accents on the lining, heel and midsole, give the shoe a deluxe, imperial look. It’s a far cry from the original infrared release, but still a fitting homage that bestows a suitably regal status on a shoe that is sneaker royalty in our eyes.

Speaking of sneaker royalty, the history buffs out there will know that Tinker Hatfield was the creative brains behind the Air Max 90, taking his inspiration for Air Max from the futuristic look of Paris’ Pompidou Center. Fast forward to today and this latest drop looks retro yet regal, but that suits us just fine. The Air Max was of course originally known as the Air Max III, with the Swoosh rebranding the Tinkerman’s creation when they rereleased the retro classic in 2000. (Imagine waiting 10 years for a new Air Max 90 drop! The horror, the horror…)

Luckily for us, we don’t have to wait a decade, as the NIKE AIR MAX 90 ROYAL is due to release shortly. Keep checking back for the full stockist details: in the meantime, you can check the current Air Max 90 selection at Nike by clicking the banner below.
