The Air Max 90s were originally released as the Air Max III, but were renamed and retroed around the year 2000. These shoes are a natural progression from the Air Max 1 and the Air Max Light, and you can see that some of the design features from the earlier releases are still present. Even though this design is over 20 years old, they still look fresh in 2013! These Nikes are definitely up there in my list of favourite sneakers.
I bought these sneakers in the original 'Infrared' colourway (white & black, with red) which are my all time favourite colourway for the 90s. There are so so many different colourways currently available for purchase and they can be customised on the Nike ID section of the Nike website. There are also Nike x Liberty 90s available which look really sweet with the Liberty fabric, shame they're always quite expensive though. Personally, I find that some of the Ladies' styles are often quite ugly - normally they're metallic gold, silver, blue or pink etc so I usually go for men's (or junior boy's) styles, such as the Infrared. It's all personal preference, after all.
The fit of these shoes is very good & they definitely fit to size so you can order online and hopefully not have too many issue with size. They are extremely comfortable which you come to expect with Nike Airs and they are so cushioned it's like you're walking on clouds! I probably wouldn't advise that you wear them as running shoes, as it seems that nowadays there's more of an emphasis on the barefoot style shoes which are better for the joints etc. They would probably be good for the gym if you weren't planning to use the treadmill or something! for everyday casual use they are absolutely perfect and extremely well made. Obviously as the shoes get worn, they will begin to have signs of cracking, but mine have lasted over a year with moderate wear, and the only signs of wear are on the soles.
Overall these are an excellent, classic, shoe and definitely one to add to the collection.
I first brought these trainers a few years ago and havent brought any others since. You can get them in loads of colours (i currently have the black, pink and white ones) and they look great.
They last for ages i had a pair that i wore every day and they lasted for over a year.
Not only do they look good and last but they are extremely comfortable, partly beacuse of the air bubble in the heel. They arent cheap, but are definitely worth the money as they last for ages and are great quality.
I have used them in the gym which they are great for because of the comfyness and they still let your feet move well.
The pair i have currently i use as work shoes because i am on my feet most of the day and they are comfortable to wear, also they are black so they look ok as work shoes.
They are also great for every day wear as you can get them in lots of colours to match your clothes. Some pairs even give you 2 different colour laces so you can have them striped and checkered e.g. if you have white and pink ones use white and pink laces.
I would reccomend this product beacause they're comfy, look great, last for ages and can be used for most activities.
Nike Air Max 90 trainers were originally known as the Nike Air Max III and were first introduced in 1987. Since then they went on to become the '90' in, you guess it, 1990! Along with the adidas Classics, these are one of the very few ranges of trainers that have stood the test of time. My particular Nike Air Max 90s are entirely black.
The Air Max 90s were all about styling and comfort when they were first introduced, and the styling has certainly stood the test of time. Unfortunately the comfort hasnt kept up with the likes of my Saucony's or my Asics, for example. Although they are specialist running shoes and these are more about style, you cannot get away from the discomfort the 90s bring during long walks. They are fine for nipping to the shops in, and are mainly worn purely for fashion reasons - they are a very stylish trainer. The trainers have good cushion with the air bubble under the heel and they offer good support around the foot. Personally, I cannot wear them for long periods of time due to discomfort and I believe this to be because of the way the trainers are designed. They were designed for fashion and to look good in with no regards for comfort. Although they were marketed as comfortable shoes hence the air bubble I find this to be no more than a gimmick.
If Nike improved the comfort of this trainer then it would be more appealing, another dissappointment with the 90s is that they dont last very long. After a month or two they will begin to show signs of wear and eventually the toe will split or the soles will peel off - something will go wrong, trust me!
The design of the trainers themselves is very appealling. The foam between the base of the shoe and the rubber sole disintegrates quite quickly once it starts to happen after a few months and they wont look brand new for very long. If you are looking to buy a pair of trainers and dont intend on wearing them then these are perfect for you. For everyone else (surely everybody?!) LOOK ELSEWHERE.
For as long as i can remember , these have been my weapon of choice when it comes to Running, dancing, walking and generally looking cool!
I think a little history is in order to show where the trainers originate from and what they are all about now.
The air max originated in '87 with the Air Max I.Air max II ( or light more commonly known as Air max light) followed shortly after in 1989.
They were first known as the air max 90' in....yes you guessed it, 1990!
Nike continued to make a new edition every year up until the present day and still seem to be going strong!
So as you are probably aware the number after the ''Air Max'' corresponds with the year it was released.
In 1993, the air bubble was fully visible for the first time, and has been ever since.
I used to pester my parents when i was at school every year for the latest version of the Air Max series and have loved them ever since.
they are extremely popular amongst the unground grounds scenes of bboying (breakdance), graffiti and other elements of the hip - hop genre.
They are extremely flexible shoes, hardwearing and stylish. They are also remarkably light so they are good for dancers, that being one of the main reasons they are popular in the break dancing scene. Also thanks to the www.nikeid.com you can now customise your sneakers to match your outfit yo' !!
Seriously get yourself a pair regardless of whether your wearing for the gym or the street......
I recently purchased some female Nike Air Max 90 Trainers for £59 they were in the sale from www.additionsdirect.co.uk. And I picked these trainers up just at the right time as I was just joining the gym so I wanted to have a decent pair that would support my ankle well.
I don't tend to wear trainers except for when I am down the gym so I got these solely for this purpose.
I got my first pair of Nike air max trainers when I was about 13, they were the first branded pair of trainers my parents had ever bought me and I was so excited!
***About the Shoe***
I have heard some people say that these trainers are no good for sport, and I know a lot of trainers are made for fashion but the main idea was for sport.
I find them very supportive, sturdy and the sole is nice and thick, it feels cushioned and comfortable and there is an air bubble on the back of the trainer which stops the impact of hitting the ground hard. So definitely suitable for sport!
This is a very popular shoe and is suitable for children right to adults, men and women
Be expected to pay around £60-£100 for some adult's trainers. And children's are around £30-£50 but it all depends on the sizing. A good tip is if you have a small foot you can buy the children's as I think the size goes up to a UK 5 although not quite sure on that.
Overall I believe what you get what you pay for, I know a lot of people say you pay for the name but Nike is a very high quality trainer for both fashion and sport. They are very high quality and in good condition mainly because I only wear mine inside.
If you were to wear these trainers every day you would notice they got quite scruffy as they mainly come in white.
Mine are white with a lime colour around certain parts of the trainer, you can get various combinations though of colours and I find they are far more attractive then other brands of trainer such as puma and addidas.
5 out of 5 from me!
As i used to work in a sports wear company I came across many types of shoes and could try on a variety of trainer styles and makes. Never have i come across a comfier trainer to wear.
Full support along the bottom of the shoe allows for a very comfy shoe to walk and lounge in, however wouldnt recommend for long walks.
Very stylish trainer which comes in a variety of different colours such as white and blue, white and red, white and black etc the Nike Air Max 90 is a top seller in all major sports wear stores.
The air bubble in the shoe allows for some extra support around the heel and the back of the foot making for a comfortable shoe.
However dont be fooled by this air bubble as it doesnt mean these shoes are good for running or sports, they are perhaps the opposite, slightly clumsy and heavy for a trainer these shoes make working out that bit harder.
Nike do plenty of other shoes for sports.
The shoes come in at around £84.99 on release, quite expensive for a trainer, but you pay for comfort and last, and this is what you get from these trainers.
Ok, they do scuff easy if they are used all the time, but use the right shoe care products and this wont be a problem.
A rubber sole along the bottom of the trainer means they leave marks on wooden flooring quite easily however not bad compared to other shoes.
Nike Air Max 90 Trainers!
I am very fussy when it comes to foot wear and that's why I always go for Nikes favourite range, Air Max 90's and there are a few reasons for this which I shall discuss a little later in my review
Nike is one of the worlds most popular and successful brands which operates in 100s of countries selling a huge range of different products ranging from shirts and tracksuit bottoms to caps and back packs.
Nike Air Max is their most popular range of shoes which was first released back in 1987 and has recently introduced many new designs to their product line. This specific product in this range wasn't realised until 1990 though which was originally caller Nike Air Max III. They are most common in the underground and are associated with the Hiphop/RnB genre.
In order to meet every ones needs and specification they can also be customised and edited where you can choose colours and designs. If you wish you can also add words such as names and numbers however this costs quite a lot extra.
One of the main designs of the Air Max 90 trainers, which I think makes it so special, is the unique air pocket in the sole which is for added comfort as it works similar to suspension.
My most recent pair of these trainers are all white however they come in much brighter colours such as reds, greens and yellows. They are much more comfortable then other branded trainers I have tried due to the bubble in heel and the soft sponge like inner sole.
In my opinion these are good all purpose trainers and are sporty yet formal at the same time. They are much more attractive then other leading brands and come in a huge range of colours. They are extremely comfortable and are a very well respected brand. When you see these trainers you usually associate them with wealth as well as extreme style and these are by far the most fashionable shoes on the market. I would recommend these to all ages but more specifically teenagers who are into Hiphop and R&B music as many of our favourite artists are seen wearing these truly amazing shoes.
With all these positive points it does however come with a down side as on average a pair of Nike Air Max 90s will set you back over £80 which is quite expensive however in my opinion well worth the money.
