As Nike continues to celebrate 30 years of the Air Max 90, the first Nike sneaker to be widely recognized in Russia sees its own city-inspired iteration, the Nike Air Max 90 Moscow, which celebrates the rich history and modern architecture of Russia’s capital.
This Nike Air Max 90 employs a Smoke Grey color scheme, which is an homage to local construction and the city’s fall sky. This is combined with Infrared and Lazer Blue elements (a nod to the shoe’s original color blockings) to reflect the city’s night lights. The upper, made of classic leather and suede, also features reflective touches to signify the futuristic aesthetic of the skyscrapers that shifted the city’s skyline.
“Speed” and “City,” found in Cyrillic on the heel and the sockliner, refer to the dynamic rhythm of the megalopolis.
The shape of the Moscow Air Max 90 is a 2020 recraft, featuring a sleeker, lower toe, and a pattern split of the original Swoosh shape on the medial side and a TPU underlay with the original logo shape.
Nike Air Max 90 Moscow Release Date
Look for the Nike Air Max 90 “Moscow” to release on November 14th at select retailers in Moscow and on Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $130 USD.
