The Nike Air Max 90 SE in history

Nike’s Air Max 90, a most loved iconic trainer, has been the subject of many upgrades over the years. The brand retains the fundamental form of this silhouette, while it splashes the upper with different materials, an array of colors, and prints. The sole also gets updated as new technologies continue to emerge now and then. Its hallmark Air bubble in the heel is the only feature of the vintage model that remains untouched as it is the shoe’s direct link to the past.

As the brand developed various technologies in simplifying the structure of the upper, it pulled the well-liked AM 90 silhouette and applied such modern techniques to it.  In 2012, the upper of the AM 90 entirely altered the aesthetics of the sneaker, eliminating suede overlays with the use of the Hyperfuse technology. This innovation uses a pressurized heat system that combines layers of materials to form one solid body for the upper.

Other techniques were used to the same profile as Nike kept on finding more solutions in streamlining and reducing the weight of sneakers. In 2013, Nike dropped the Air Max 90 Tape Infrared, which eliminated the seams from the upper utilizing the Hyperfuse pressure in melding the tape material to the traditional mesh structure.

This edition resurrected the classic and traditional style by using plush suede and high-quality leather. The Nike Air Max 90 SE also came in pale, feminine colors and lighted neutral tones built-in leather, suede, and textile upper paired with a durable tan rubber sole, much to the desire of the women consumers.
