The recycled Air Max 90 features an upper that is made of recycled cotton canvas. It comes with a light grey base and darker colored overlays. The colorway of this sneaker definitely follows the step of the Space Hippie sneakers.

A "desert sand" take on the AM 90 NRG sneaker is also available. This colorway calls upon the color palette of a classic Nike ACG product. It features a tan suede mudguard, sand-colored overlays with detailings that seem to nod to the terrain patterns found on maps.
