Nike Air Max 90 (Obsidian Denim/Beach)

A certified classic among many an especially with a lot of folks in the UK, the Air Max 90 still gets serious props to this day and the shoe’s healthy reputation is still intact and as strong as ever.

Kicking off 2012, Nike provide us with this excellent release that makes use of tough materials and a solid colour palette. These make interesting use of rugged canvas materials which have an obsidian denim colour application that evokes denim aesthetics and some nostalgia of past AM90 releases. Beach accents hit in all the right places and provide a balanced contrast to the denim effect, which blends well with the subtle colour choices. This is the kind of release that has unisex appeal and luckily for the ladies the size run goes down to a UK5.5.

A great start to 2012 for the AM90.

Available for pre-order over at Crooked Tongues now.
