All you need to know about the Nike Air Max 90 'Laser'

Nike is dropping the Air Max 90 in the Laser colorway at the end of this month. This special look is not unknown to us. Read on for all the details!

Mark Smith inspired

Laser is not very common among current Nike products, but thanks to Mark Smith it has appeared on a few products. Mark became famous for his work on the Air Jordan 20. The Nike Air Max 90 is further to the Nike Air Force 1 'Laser' which came out in 2003. The laser work on the Air Force was inspired by tattoos. Only 200 copies of the sneaker were made. The lasered tattoo design is back in the latest Air Max Laser, but this time with a topographical pattern.

The sneaker is made of natural vegetable leather. A topographical pattern is engraved on the toe box, back and middle section. There are no stitchings on the upper, because it is made from one piece. The Swoosh, tongue, ankle and parts of the upper are left in their natural state. The branding on the tongue and heel also have an engraved look.

Underneath the upper is a white midsole and a cream-coloured semi-transparent outsole. For the kicks, a wooden look has been used. This can also be seen in small details, such as the lacing. The topographical pattern on the upper is also used for the wrapping paper the shoe is contained in.

The Nike Air Max 90 Laser 'Woodgrain' drops on Tuesday 30 March at 09:00. They will cost €200 via Nike.
