Over a year ago, rumors began to circulate surrounding a potential re-release of the Air Max 90 “Bacon”. Official images of the long-awaited reissue emerged last month, further hinting at the return of the iconic colorway and, now, Nike has finally confirmed that the beloved Air Max is indeed back.
The Air Max 90 “Bacon” originally launched in 2004, courtesy of a collaboration between Nike and New York City boutique Dave’s Quality Meat. The colorway, which draws from the shades of a strip of bacon, is widely regarded as one of the most iconic Air Max 90s ever.
To add to the allure of the sneaker, the Air Max 90 “Bacon” has never been reissued — until now.
