Nike Air Max 90 Jacquard History

One of Nike’s most iconic and classic shoe silhouettes is the Nike Air Max 90 or sometimes referred to as AM 90. It was first released in 1990 initially as the “Nike Air Max III” and only renamed as the “Nike Air Max 90” in the year 2000.

The Nike Air Max 90 made its way as one of the brand's most popular shoe models. Throughout the years, it has undergone several releases in varying colorways and upgrades or versions.

One of the recent versions of the Air Max 90 is the Nike Air Max 90 Jacquard, which first released in February 2014 in the “Laser Crimson” colorway. To date, this shoe has several other colorways available. The Jacquard version of the Air Max 90 is much lighter and flexible than the original because it utilizes a one-piece upper in a woven material constructed through the “Jacquard” weaving process, hence the name.

Nike Air Max 90 Jacquard Style

The Nike Air Max 90 Jacquard is a modern retro twist on the classic running-inspired Air Max 90 sneaker. It is a low-top sneaker available in several colorways with varying color combinations. It looks great when worn with jeans, casual pants, and shorts. Because of its upper material and construction, the Air Max 90 Jacquard is a great option to wear during the summer.

This iteration of the iconic Air Max 90 features a one-piece, minimal upper construction, and an adjustable lace closure. The tongue bears an extra eyelet in which the laces could loop through to help keep it in place. The collar and the tongue are sufficiently padded for added comfort around the ankle.

Notable Features
