Nike to Reissue DQM’s Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon” for Air Max Day 2020
Nike’s blueprint for re-issuing classics for the annual Air Max Day celebration has helped hype-up the seven-year-old event, with classics like the Air Max 1 “Safari” (2016), Air Max 1 “Elephant” retro (2017) and of course the Air Max 1 OG in 2018. Now you can add one more banger to the esteemed list the return of Dave Ortiz’s DQM x Nike Air Max 90 “Bacon“, a pair which released way back in 2004.
Dave’s Quality Meat (DQM) was that far ahead of its time. Its Butcher-themed aesthetic from wall to wall included apparel ranging from meathooks and other items stored inside refrigerator displays made DQM such a standout in New York sneaker scene, that Nike decided to link up with the retailer for a special-edition Air Max 90. The store’s theme carried over through a meaty rendition of the Air Max classic, from fatty beiges to tender reds and pinks and well-done browns. The use of premium leathers and suedes were a nod to the store’s attention to detail — even though the collaboration is said to have only taken a day to put together.
A release date for the pair is yet to be revealed, but we’re expecting it to release in or around the annual Air Max Day celebration on March 26th. As always, keep your eyes glued to our Twitter feed for further updates, including first looks and a list of retailers who’ll be stocking to drop.
