Brand: Nike

Model: Air Max 90 “New Species”

Key Features: As the sneaker’s name suggests, the deign and color scheme takes inspiration from a “new species.” A platinum grey upper provides a subdued look, with pops of color coming in the form of beige detailing on the upper and electric green on the Swoosh and midsole. The tongue and side panel features skived nubuck, which gives the sneaker a scaly effect. Paired with the electric green, it gives off reptilian/alien vibes.

Release Date: Available now globally.

Price: €160 / £120

Buy: Nike and select retailer such as Afew and Sneakersnstuff

Editor’s Notes: Nike continues to release strong Air Max 90 colorways in the run up to the silhouette’s 30th anniversary next year. This latest one is dubbed “New Species” and, as its name and color scheme suggest, is clearly inspired by something other worldly. Check it out above and look for it to drop in Europe on September 26. Stay tuned for information on a US drop.
