Also known as the Air Max III or the Air Max 3, this classic sneaker remains one of the most sought for models on the market decades after its release, much like the Air Max 1, 95 and 97. It was designed by Tinker Hatfield, the one who also came up with several popular designs in the Jordan retro series. Its timeless design is one of the reasons why this sneaker is still trending. It features a combination of leather, mesh and synthetic overlays and the visible heel Air Max unit which makes it comfortable, stylish and durable.

Collaborations with other brands, designers , and artists have breathed new life into this classic silhouette, attracting new audiences and keeping long time fans engaged. 

Year 2023 has been a busy one for the Nike Air Max 90, with numerous new versions being released, including some featuring Gore-Tex and a collaboration with EA Sports. In this article we pulled the best Nike Air Max 90 colorways in our opinion for this year so far.

Nike Air Max Team USA white blue red

Style # DM0029 400

Obsidian/Pure Platinum/White/Track Red

This version of the Nike Air Max 90 debuted at the beginning of the summer, just in time for the 4th of July celebrations. Dressed up in navy blue suede with white mesh upper and crimson red outsole and branding, his pair has a nice team USA feel to it. Dark tones work great into the fall so this one is up there as one of our favorites this year.

Nike Air Max 90 White Jewel

Style # FN8005 100

White/Photon Dust/Light Smoke Grey

The Jewel version of this sneaker debuted in 2022 and given the success of the initial releases Nike came up with some new colorways in 2023. Among these is the all white and gray version which is a great one for the summer and beyond. This is an edition exclusive so far to Finishline and JD Sports and it features a smaller, translucent Swoosh logo instead of the classic one.

Nike Air Max 90 white black

Style #CN8490-101

Color: White/White/Black

The white and black version version is surely one of the best Nike Air Max 90 colorways released this summer. It seems to be part of the Panda theme colorways from Nike that also include a pair of Dunk Lows and Air Force 1. The white and black combination is all about the contrast it brings and how it outlines the design of this beautiful sneaker.

Style # FN6843-100

White/Photon Dust/Black/Game Royal

This version in white, royal blue and black was released in the summer of 2023, drawing comparisons with the Fragment Design x Converse Weapon edition in the same colorway. Hiroshi Fujiwara is credited with this colorway despite no official ties with this particular model. It is one that surely complements this classic, especially in the summer.

Nike Air Max 90 Iron Grey

Style # CN8490-002

Iron Grey/Dark Smoke Grey/Black/White

The iron gray version of this sneaker has been one of the most popular colorways since 2020. Even if this pair was released three years ago it’s still up on the shelves due to repeat restocking due to popular demand. The reason is the neutral look of this shoe which makes it even more appealing and versatile than most other iterations.

Nike Air Max 90 Kahaki

Style # DZ3522-001

Phantom/Khaki/Baroque Brown/Light Bone

Another pair that is worth mentioning for this year is the Nike Air Max 90 in phantom and khaki colors, also nicknamed “Baroque Brown”. This colorway was released in the spring but its dark , vintage tone works great with the fall season as well. This pair is still available in stores as well at various reseller sites like eBay.

Nike Air Max 90 Olibe brown beige

Style # FB9658-200

Color: N/A

One of the most anticipated pairs to arrive in the fall of 2023 is the one in tan/brown and olive colors. While an official release date is not available yet ,we cannot wait to see these earth tones on a pair of Air Max 90. We anticipate that this one will fly off shelves fast so you can always check on Bay if you miss out on the official release.
