Nike has had a theme of mixing modern technology and materials with classic Nike silhouettes including the Air Force 1, and Air Max 1. Next up, the Air Max 90 will get the Flyknit makeover, themed to the original infrared colorway. While I have been a fan of the new / old blends, the consumer market is hard to please since the prices of the models can run up to $175 for the Air Force 1, and the Air Max 1 retail was $160. So what will be the price of these? I am guessing $160, but they may be a hard sell after the initial launch of the OG colorway. You can see below, the Air Max 1 Ultra is no only $79 on Nike’s website, which is lower than any other site I could find. The good news? Due to less demand, you can purchase a great pair of sneakers that are very comfortable for a great price!
No US release date set for the Nike Air Max 90 Flyknit, but more info to come.
