Release Reminder: Air Max 90 City Pack
If you’ve been around Nike Park lately, you must’ve seen the latest Air Max 90 releases lined up for its 30th anniversary (we’re still waiting Nike for the OG packs to drop in Men’s sizes). While some of these colorways are already in store, you might want to pick up the rest of this year’s City Pack for the Air Max 90.
For this year’s City Pack, Nike celebrates the silhouette’s connection to the hardworking professionals who move their respective cities. Upon first glance, you’ll notice the details on the recrafted upper, tongue, lace tips, sockliner and mudguard logo. The details tie to the city and the people behind these cities. Here are three of the five that’s confirmed to drop in the PH:
Air Max 90 ‘Paris’ – Parisian Bakers
Nike looked to Paris’ culinary background and the famouse Parisian bakers. Taking design cues with their uniforms, the all-over white textile used on the upper is accented by the French flag with gold embroidery of wheat. The sockliner graphic features details usually found on traditional bakery packaging with the “Baked Fresh Daily” tag, complete with a list of ingredients. Additional blue embroidery can be found on the inside tongue.
The Air Max 90 ‘Paris’ retails for Php 7,195 and will be available tomorrow on Nike.com/ph and at select Nike Park stores.
Air Max 90 ‘London’ – London’s Postmen and Postwomen
Have you received Royal Mail from London? Looking at the shoe, you’ll easily identify their uniforms with the color blocking done on the Air Max 90. The Swoosh has an inlaid chevron graphic that resembles the Royal Mail delivery vans/trucks’ design. On the tongue, you’ll notice a stamp-style design, but featuring Nike’s co-founder, Bill Bowerman. The Royal Mail crown logo can be found on the lace aglets and sockliner graphic to complement the overall design.
The Air Max 90 ‘London’ retails for Php 7,195 and will be available at Nike.com/ph and now available at select Nike Park stores around the metro.
Air Max 90 ‘Shanghai’ – Shanghai Delivery Service Workers
For the Air Max 90 ‘Shanghai’, Nike looked to the top food delivery service workers for inspiration. Either decked in blue or yellow (and you’ll notice them all over Shanghai), the Air Max 90 has delivery design nods throughout the sneaker. Instead of Nike Air on the mudguard, a 5-star rating replaces it, while the tongue tag features delivery details. The insole graphic features two scooters, which these delivery riders use all over. Additional details on the TPU eyestays and embroidery on the inside tongue complete this special edition sneaker.
The Air Max 90 ‘Shanghai’ retails for Php 7,195 and will be available at nike.com/ph tomorrow (February 12).
