Undefeated Air Max 90 teased via Instagram
The Undefeated brand decided to take to Instagram recently to tease an upcoming collaboration with Nike. Which looks to be centred around the incredibly popular Air Max 90 silhouette. The image they posted featured a pair of Air Max 90 heel tabs with the Undefeated logo embossed on the back. Although the Los Angeles based retailer were reluctant to share any further information about the drop it can be gleamed from the post that there will be at least two colourways for the Undefeated Air Max 90, due to the two different coloured heel tabs featuring in the teaser. Though there is also the possibility that we could see a mismatched colourway drop.
Further information release about Undefeated AM90
Since the initial Instagram post reports have surfaced that 6 colourways for the Undefeated Air Max 90 will be released, with the collaboration being produced to coincide with the 30th Anniversary of the Air Max 90 silhouette. Further from the original post, images of one of the colourways has also been released. A white & ‘Blue Fury’ design that features an upper constructed from tumbled leather; a mudguard doubled up without the Air Max branding; while the heel’s Swoosh has been replaced by the Undefeated logo (as seen from the original Instagram post). Other colourways set to feature are reported to include a ‘Green Spark’ and ‘Solar Red’. With all six touted to drop September 20th.
Undefeated x Nike frequent collaborators
Of course Nike and Undefeated are no strangers to collaboration. Having partnered successfully on a number of projects previously spanning multiple silhouettes for a number of years. Notably with Black and White version of an Undefeated x Air Max 97 being previously released. As well as probably, and most interestingly, an incredibly coveted Undefeated x Air Jordan 4 which is listed for over $20,000 on various online trainers resell platforms. While most recently, the retailer teamed up with Nike on a set of co-branded “Mamba Day” Nike Kobe 4 Protros.
