Building on last year’s success of the Air Max ‘Camo’ Collection, Nike has given the military treatment to the Nike Air Max 90 Sneakerboot MC SP ‘Desert Camo.’
The Hyperfuse and canvas upper make for an interesting yet subtle old-meets-new look with rugged appeal. Constructed with a higher cut, the sockliner is now a one piece bootie to provide a better fit and to prevent foot slippage. For the obese footed, the pull tabs on the heel and tongue will definitely come in handy.
The sole on the Air Max 90 Sneakerboot got retooled as well, in the form of pointed studs to tackle uneven terrain and the outdoors for adventurous types. Paired with the khaki and light olive shades of camouflage, the studded sole on the toe cap looks pretty badass.
The insole comes with an American flag, but as of now the only stores that even carried it are in Europe. Go figure. And now, we wait. A stateside release is imminent. ‘MURICA.
