The Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Duck Camo presents a fitting 30th anniversary special for Air Max Day 2020. It takes inspiration from the 2013 iteration in partnership with Atmos. The inverted colorway proves to be the biggest difference this time, with the infrared more pronounced on the uppers. Undoubtedly, it’s one of the biggest highlights of Air Max Day 2020.

Another highly anticipated Air Max Day release is the all-new Air Max 2090. The sneaker, inspired by the DNA of the Air Max 90, is a futuristic revamp of the icon.

Converse x FOG Essentials Chuck Taylor 1970s Hi
March 26

Footwear drops Converse x FOG Essentials Nike Air Max 90 infrared duck camo release details 2020

The classic Converse Chuck Taylor is a staple for the streets, but Jerry Lorenzo’s FOG Essentials is here to give it a touch of edginess. Pairing a contrasting combination of black and white, Lorenzo paints a perfect picture of this simple icon. But knowing the designer, it’s all in the details. The collaboration marries both the rough touch of canvas on the uppers with a premium smooth leather tongue in black. Wearers of the high-top silhouette are known to loop the laces around the ankles, and Jerry Lorenzo recognizes the style with a heel loop that allows for just that. The iteration may be simple, but fans will love it for the details and, definitely, the co-branded rubber heel stamp on the back.

Asics Gel Lyte III OG ‘Modern Tokyo’

Rounding up the list of icons is none other than the Asics Gel Lyte III, this time styled after Japan and Tokyo’s most iconic spot – the Shibuya crossing. Aptly themed in black and white, the sneaker features the famous split-tongue and sleek leather overlays. What’s interesting too is the use of transparent synthetic material instead of the usual mesh on the uppers, which truly gives it a modern fashion-forward look that’s easy to wear.
