BTS of the Nike Air Max 90 Bacon!
History2Go: The Nike Air Max 90 Bacon Silhouette was a collabo between DQM x Nike! Oh and 'DQM' stands for Dave's Quality Meats… . Yes, you heard it right! Nike has collaborated with a 'Butcher'! The CEO of DQM is Dave Ortiz and therefore the Colorway of this shoe is called Bacon!
As you, dear community, already know, I like to joke and the 'butcher' part is a half 'joke'. Dave Ortiz, the owner and designer of the AM90 Bacon, really had a 'butcher's shop', but appearances are deceptive! His store was a sneaker boutique that he ran and the whole thing was a 'concept store'! Instead of 'high quality meat' Dave sold 'Skate Apparel' in the heart of New York City! The sneaker was first released in 2005 and now we get a Re-Release! The NEW official release date is Holiday 2020, but so far Nike doesn't confirm it yet. …real bacon would be burnt already! Below you can find some pics of the Kickz. Let's Go!
By the way: This is the new Release Date, because the Nike Air Max 90 NRG Bacon should have been released on Nike Air Max Day in March 2020!
By the way: Dave Ortiz used to work for 'Zoo York' - a skateshop in New York City. Zoo York is world famous among skaters. But Dave establish his own company and opened his own store 'DQM'. He got the chance to design a Nike shoe and so the AM90 Bacon was born! As inspiration Dave took, you guessed it, 'Bacon'… heavenly!
