After the recent debut of the Nike Air Max 90 "Side A", we now have a look at its literal and figurative counterpart: the "Side B". Just like its twin, this mixtape-inspired Max digs deep into '90s heritage, presenting a hand-scrawled "tracklist" under the translucent outsole that acknowledges some of the best Air Max 90 colorways of all time while also nodding to a bygone-yet-beloved era before streaming, one where where homemade compilations were the norm. The clever detailing on the leather tongue returns as well, with a 33 1/3 RPM hit - the speed at which vinyl records are played - accompanied by the shoeâ€™s style code and color info, seemingly drawn directly off the box. The "Moon Landing"-style print returns on the medial midfoot overlays as well. Although the details may be familiar, the palette flips the script on the first pairâ€™s bright and summery look, instead opting for a more dark and stormy combination of a black base/anthracite accents, all of which are amplified by vibrant pops of coral on the laces, heel, and midfoot Swoosh. Bricolage-style stitching on the heel and an alternately logo-ed tongue badge add farther to the agglomeration of aesthetics, and a finishing hit of premium flair is provided by cork insoles.
