To celebrate 30 years of the iconic Air Max 90 silhouette, Nike is dropping a brand new colourway called Sail.

The Air Max 90 turns 30 this year. The original model was designed by Tinker Hatfield and released as the Air Max III way back in 1990.

At its release, it featured the largest visible Air Unit ever created by Nike. It was a unique design for its time – people were obsessed with the textured, panelled upper, as well as the multi-port lacing system.

To celebrate its birthday, Nike is dropping a brand new monochromatic colourway called Sail and you need to add this pair to your sneaker rotation immediately.

Release date: 21 December. Keep in mind that this is a US release date. At times, the US and AU dates are the same, but other times, they are about a week or two apart.

Where to buy: Nike and other select retailers. While the retailers in question haven't been confirmed yet, we recommend keeping an eye on JD Sports, Platypus Shoes and Hype DC.

What makes the Sail colourway so special? It features a sleeker deconstructed toe with a lower mudguard. There's a split pattern of textures on the back, as well as the signature Swoosh logo.

The difference isn't just on the outside, but on the inside too. We're obsessed with the ultra-plush linings and the unique sock-liner featuring an Air Max 1 outsole on the bottom.
