The Nike Air Max 90 “Black Jewel” Could Be a Real Gem
A contemporary beautification of Tinker Hatfield's opus.
The Nike Air Max 90 is one of Nike’s most legendary pairs. To this day it continues to be reimagined, with the latest being this titular “Black Jewel” colorway.
Black engulfs the upper dressing the pair’s mesh base layer, tongues, tumbled leather overlays, and nubuck mudguards. Yellow accents bring contrast by way of the tongue branding, the insoles, and the Air bubbles, in addition to the translucent TPU Jewel Swooshes on the profiles. All the aforementioned is anchored by a White midsole atop a Black rubber outsole.
Enjoy the official images at the gallery above as we wait for more release information. They’re expected to have an RRP of US$140.
