Official Images // Nike Air Max 90 “Day of the Dead”
Though the celebration has come and passed for 2021, the rollout of celebratory Dia de los Muertos sneakers continues. Likely delayed by the effects of COVID, the Nike Air Max 90 “Day of the Dead” will continue the remembrance deep into November, with pairs of the special-edition sneaker set to hit select global markets later this month.
Arriving in stark contrast to last year’s gaudy vibrancy, the 2021 Day of the Dead Air Max 90 arrives anchored in reserved black, muted green, and earth browns. But that’s not to say it’s not festive — it’s just done differently. Here it’s black suede and brown velour lining that honors Mexican traditions of taking the trip to Mictlán, with a strike of green textile Swoosed and bright white midsoles for good measure. Though they’re mostly hairless, the faux fur texture is said to be inspired by the Xoloescuincle, a guide animal you one meets along the way, whilst embroidered skeleton designs on the forefoot and heel add to the Muertos mood.
Nike Mexico has listed up a November 17 release for the Nike Air Max 90 “Day of the Dead” — but a wider global rollout is yet to be confirmed. Until more detail on that arrive, grab an official look at the pair here below, and be sure to keep your eyes glued to our official Twitter account for further updates.
