04 Jul Nike Air Max 90 inspired by “Mixtape” and “Vinyl Records”
As any true ’90s baby will tell you, there was nothing quite like a homemade summertime soundtrack before the era of endless streaming service playlists, so Nike is nodding to those DIY days of yore with brand-new Air Max 90 sneakers “Mixtape” aka Side A and “Vinyl Record” aka Side B.
Nike Air Max 90 Premium “Mixtape” aka Side A
The “Side A” colorway features a white mesh base with cork insoles, gray leather overlays, and lemon accents. The real action, however, is in the details. “Side A” is printed on each tongue, with “33 1/3 RPM” text nodding to the speed at which LPs play. On the translucent outsole, there’s a hand-scrawled track list of eight colorways: 1. OG/Infrared, 2. King of the Mountain, 3. Anniversary Cork, 4. Moon Landing, 5. Lemon Frost, 6. Untold Truth, 7. OG/Ostrich, and 8. BRS Powerwall.

The “Side B” colorway is predominantly black with red detailing on the Swoosh and laces, stitched detailing on the heel of the mudguard, and “Side B” printed on the tongue. The translucent outsole features the same hand-scrawled tracklist of colorways.
