Dubbed the Undefeated X Nike Air Max 90 Pacific Blue, this Air 90 gets some minor modifications to create a newer and sleeker look. Changes include the silhouette’s mud flap being removed and making the hairy suede Swoosh on the side panels larger than normal. These two changes make the classic Air Max 90 into an Undefeated original. The tongue clip and back panel are hit with UNDEFEATED branding, while the Pacific Blue upper is accented by the contrasting hues on the toe box and heel tab region.
Just in time for Air Max Day, BAIT retailer has linked up with the talented Reina Koyano (_vivalareina on IG) to produce the limited edition print you see up top.
Reina, who is best known for her illustration series called “Sole Fatale” where she reimagines iconic sneakers into powerful female figures. Her newest illustration consists of two female figures inspired by the upcoming Nike Air Max 2090 and the Nike Air Max 90 Reverse Duck Camo. This specific print is inspired by the notion that the past inspires tomorrow.
A slew of standout styles will be offered on Air Max Day (March 26), and one of those notable offerings will be this Nike Air Max 90 “Metallic Chrome.” Clean and simple, the popular runner’s leather upper is draped in the shiny hue to evoke a luxurious aesthetic while a crisp white rubber sole tops off the two-tone design.

On March 26, 1987, Nike debuted its first sneaker showcasing the Swoosh’s now iconic Air technology through a side-visibility window — the Air Max 1. Thirty-three years later, and with the continual ingenuity of Nike Air by way of Air Manufacturing Innovation, the company still celebrates the revolutionary cushioning platform on the release date of its first shoe.
This Air Max Day 2020, Nike pays homage to the countless Air Max variations over the years that paved the way for the future of Air, including the recent Air Max 90 Flyease and the Air Max Verona. The day also helps Air Max wearers celebrate their style and showcase their creativity. Here are the sneakers that Nike will be releasing to celebrate Air Max Day 2020.
As we all know by now, the Nike Air Max 90 is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and Nike has been hitting us hard with the releases. Previously rumored to be releasing on or around Air Max Day, the OG Infrared colorway of the AM 90 is now being pushed back to some time during the 2020 holiday season. The 2020 version of the much beloved Air Max 90 is expected to come with a look and shape that resembles the original pair as closely as possible. How many pairs will you be picking up when these drop? Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates.
This UNDEFEATED x Nike Air Max 90 “Pacific Blue” will join the “Platinum Tint” and “Black Anthracite” colorways of the collaborative silhouette for spring. Unlike the collab this past fall, this variation of runner is modified with new details such as chenille Swooshes on the sides, “Air Max” branding on the front of the speckled midsole, a Swoosh logo behind the tongue, UNDFTD branding on the tongue and insoles, followed by 3M reflective detailing throughout. Additionally, translucent material for the eyelets, heel overlay and outsole round out the design.
