Legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield returns with a new Air Max edition, the Air Max 90 Ultra Superfly T.
Created in Nike’s Innovation Kitchen in a collaborative effort between himself, Hiroshi Fujiwara and Mark Parker, the sneaker is a mix of the brand’s Air Max 90 with its Mercurial Superfly football boot.
It’s midsole was cored out with Ultra technology, while being given sock-like Flyknit upper.
“I struggle just being a colorist or an arbiter of style. So if I’m asked to redo an Air Max, I’m going to change it. I’m going to give it some additional technology,” Hatfield says. “I’ve always liked wearing the Mercurial Superfly. I like how the collar feels. By adding that collar to the Air Max 90, we are changing its performance, which has always been an interest of mine as a designer.”
The Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Superfly T is available now on Nike’s SNKRS App.
