The John Mayer x Nike Air Max 90 “Pickle Rick” taps into pop culture’s latest obsession, Rick and Morty.

Mayer revealed the sneakers through Instagram on Sunday, August 27.

The shoes will come in a multicolored green and gray colorway along with striking hints of red, blue, and yellow throughout its uppers. In addition, the silhouette also sits atop an off-white and green boost sole.

This customized Nike Air Max 90 is the musician’s second Air Max iD creation after the Nike AIR MAYER “Spirit Level”. However, unlike his previous creation, fans do not have the purchase the sneakers from Mayer’s Shopify page.

Pickle Rick is a character that appeared in episode three of the show’s third season (see above). The series acquired a large cult viewership after its premiere in December 2013. As of July 2017, the show currently has more than 2.8 million views, ranking second for cable viewership.

The Air Max 90 “Pickle Rick” is available for purchase at Nike iD for US$130 (approx. S$176).
