Clean lines, versatile and timeless—the people’s shoe returns with the Nike Air Max 90. Featuring the same iconic Waffle sole, stitched overlays and classic TPU accents you’ve come to love, it lets you walk among the pantheon of Air. 


Be big and bold and let everyone know you’ve arrived with a pair of Air Max 90 shoes. Continuing the legacy started by the Air Max 1, the Air Max 90 truly celebrates the signature technology by increasing the size of the air bubble and midsole, and accentuates that design element by encapsulating the area with bright and eye-catching colors. With design led once again by Tinker Hatfield, the Air Max 90 was built with several stand-out features, including the lacing system, the use of multiple materials, the large “Nike Air” heel cap on the rear of the shoe and now famous colorways including “Infrared” that the shoe is most famous for. Embrace the signature cushioning and silhouette of Air Max 90 shoes, and find the pairs that align with your personality and style.

Behind the Air Max 90 design

Thirty years ago, the Air Max 90 transcended the track to become a staple on the streets – the icon returns for a new generation. Go behind the design with Product Manager Reggie Hunter and Footwear Designer Juliana Sagat, who says this about the Air Max 90: “To recapture the vibe of the OG Air Max 90, we didn’t just ‘retro’ the iconic silhouette, we recrafted it.”
